was created as a last chance for runners to qualify for the Boston Marathon or improve their current seed times.
We ask that participants expect to be within ten minutes of their BQ times.
THE CHASING THE UNICORN MARATHON COURSE TIME LIMIT IS 5 HOURS 10 MINUTES
The Chasing the Unicorn Marathon is a double out-and-back course and runs concurrently with
The Alternative Half Marathon
Course: from Washington Crossing Historic Park along the Delaware Canal towpath (Delaware Canal State Park) to the south end of New Hope Pennsylvania and back. Course is concurrent with the Chasing the Unicorn Marathon, we ask that slower participants in the half marathon stay in single file and allow faster runners on their second lap of the Marathon to pass.
IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE THE POTENTIAL FOR BQ QUALIFIERS IN THE CHASING THE UNICORN MARATHON THE TIME LIMIT FOR THE ALTERNATIVE HALF MARATHON WILL BE 3hrs15min
RACES START AT 7:30AM
As the course is narrow wave starts of (50) participants will be sent off :30 seconds apart.
SATURDAY PACKET PICK-UP WILL BE AVAILABLE THIS YEAR. LOCATION: TBA
