Q: What time is the cut off for the marathon?
A: The same time as the leg 2 cut off - 5:30 pm.

Q: What time does the marathon start?
A: The marathon starts at 8 am. It is run at the same time and on the same trail as the Ultramarathon, it just ends at leg 2.

Q: Do I need a coin?
A: No. In Greek mythology, Charon is the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the river Styx that divides the world of the living from the world of the dead. A coin is used to pay Charon for passage. Since the river crossing is on leg 5 and the marathon is made up of legs 1 and 2 only, marathon runners do not get a coin.
