Dam Site Marathon and Half Marathon @ Green Gables
Oct 25 @ 8:00 am

Marathon and Half-Marathon

This will be a small, local, safe and properly socially distanced run. Your safety is our number one priority as we give you an opportunity to run a Marathon or Half Marathon this fall.

Pick your own entry fee – Run for as low as $10! Seriously, you pay what you can afford. A limited number of $10 entries and $20 entries are available for those whose income has been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 shutdown, or for those who were unable to get a refund from their cancelled fall marathon.

Register Early! The race is capped and is expected to sell out. Lake Run Club Members (current, and those joining) will be given an exclusive opportunity to register prior to launching widely. Members also receive first opportunity to select the lowest entry fees.

Register with very little cost risk. Nobody knows what the coming days, weeks, and months have in store. Because we are keeping expenses to an absolute minimum for this race, if it needs to be cancelled due to COVID-19, your base entry fee *WILL* be refunded. The sign up service fee, and any additional purchases such as a finisher medal are non-refundable.
