WALKER FRIENDLY, COURSE CUT OFF AND OTHER COURSE NOTES
The Midnight Madness Marathon is walker and stroller friendly. If you feel like coming out for an evening stroll through beautiful Hamilton then we encourage you to enter. If you are bringing a family member along with you in a stroller then we ask that you please give the right of way to walkers and runners.
The 10K and half marathon do not have a cut off time. The marathon does have a cut off time of just over 15 minutes per mile. This will give you just over 6.5 hours to finish the marathon.
Port-o-lets will be at the start of each loop (which is also the start and finish line) and at the far end of the loop where you enter the bike trail from Fairview. That means port-o-lets approximately every 3 miles.
Although we cannot prohibit headphones, we ask that you please leave your headphones at home as they are a safety hazard for yourself and for other runners.
There will be an aid station approximately every 1.5 miles. Please check back for an aid station map. The aid station at Fairview Avenue and the Great Miami River Recreational trail will have Gatorade. All aid stations will have ice water.
Midnight Madness reserves the right to postpone, cancel or change the race or race format at any time to ensure athlete safety. If Midnight Madness determines conditions that might compromise the safety of participants, Midnight Madness, in its sole judgment, may cancel, postpone, or change the race and/or race format. No Refunds or Transfers will be given.
