GREEN RIVER MARATHON, RELAY, HALF MARATHON AND NEW 50K

Saturday, June 01, 2024 (5:15 - 9:00 AM Start)

Green River Marathon Updated (05/18/24)

I just decided to have high quality T-shirts for this year's event (05/17/24)

Everyone will be getting a T-shirt at the start of the race.

Please find it reasonable to add an additional $15.00 for this year's event.

COST: $35.00 ($20.00 Donation + $15.00 T-shirt).

You can bring your donations to the start of the race on race day.

Or if you prefer, you can use zelle to pay in advance. 

Use Zelle to send your donation to: barrick@greenrivermarathon.com

Keith and I discussed how we are already set up for supporting a 50K race, so we decided to add a 50K race to this event (4/3/24).

You may start as early as 5:15 AM and the race will be over at 2:00 PM. We will all be leaving at that time, but if you haven't finished yet - you can simply email me your results.

We are allowing about 8:45:00 for you to finish your event. 

The following are good things.

Because of so many weddings, anniversaries, graduations, birth days, vacations, summer plans and the overwhelming of so many runners wanting to start between 5:15 AM and 6:00 AM,

we have decided to modify this year's course to accommodate each and every runner. We will be running multiple out and backs this year.

WE WILL BE RUNNING SOUTH ON THE GREEN RIVER TRAIL AND THEN BACK.

1/2 marathon will be TWO out and backs ~ 3.28 miles South on the Green River Trail and back to where you started.

Full marathon will be FOUR out and backs ~ 3.28 miles South on the Green River Trail and back to where you started.

50K will be FOUR out and backs ~ 3.28 miles South on the Green River Trail and back to where you started then a final 2.4 mile out and back.

Race will be over at 2:00 PM. We will have you self-report your times to me at the finish.

8:00 AM - 9:00 AM: Late stragglers who cannot make it to the starting line by 8:00 AM.

8:00 AM: Marathoners And Half Marathoners Mass Start.

7:00 AM: Early Start.

6:00 AM: Super Early Start.

5:15 AM - 6:00 AM: Super Super Early Start (those who cannot wait until 6:00 AM to start).

I hope to see many of you Saturday (06/01/24) for our 28th Annual Running of this Marathon, Relay, Half Marathon AND NEW 50K.
