Marathon Racers

Print page

After a resounding success in 2016 & 2017, we are pleased to offer the Near Death Marathon again in 2018 - the world's toughest (and slowest!) marathon! This taste of Death may get you hooked on Death Racing.

The Marathon is run concurrently with the Solo and Relay Races on the same course but spans only Leg 1 and Leg 2 (with a by-pass of the Flood Summit Loop to achieve the regulation length of 42.2 km). The 2/3 transition happens to loop back through the Start/Finish line allowing marathoners to successfully finish while the soloists and teams head out on leg 3. The marathon cut off is the same as the leg 2 cut off: 5:30 pm.

Marathon division substitution is strictly prohibited. However, you may transfer a marathon entry for a $100 administration fee to next year's race by following the "REGISTER NOW" link to the "solo/marathon rollover form" (just below regular registration options). Refunds of 70% are only offered within 45 days once entry is accepted (and no refunds after May 1st) – NO EXCEPTIONS. 

ONE parking pass is included in your race kit for your crew - with directions to aid stations on the back. 

If you can't pick up your award at the Monday Awards Ceremony, please be sure to complete the Award/Ambler Bag Shipping Request form which will be found on the right-hand list of tabs.
