THE COURSE

Our course is challenging and starts off with 4 miles flat, followed by 5 hills in the next 5 miles and finishes downhill and flat for the final 4 miles. Do that twice for the Marathon.

1/3 of the course is along Long Island Sound.

Some roads will be partially closed (Police at intersections) but most roads will be open.

Aid stations every 2 miles beginning at Mile 2.5 stocked with Water, Gatorade & GU.

Porto-Lets at Miles 4.5, 6.55, 13.1, 17.6, 21.5.

Any Marathoner can drop down to the Half Marathon and be an official finisher. You can stop before the 2nd loop or you can try the second loop and not complete it (Mile 17 is across the street from the venue). Your Half Marathon split time will be an official Half Marathon Finish. We call this the "Drop Down Guarantee" and many people do it every year. Just let the timer know and he will change it.  

 

TIMING AND RESULTS

Transponder Timing and Results with timing splits at 6.55, 13.1, 19.65 and 26.2.

Results will be live streaming on SecondWindTiming.com as well as emailed to you once you finish.

 

CUTOFFS AND EARLY STARTS

Half Marathon Time cutoff is 5:00.

Marathon Time cutoff is 6:30.

The Second loop closes at Noon so any Marathoner who has not started the second loop will become an official Half Marathon Finisher.

Those who plan to run a 6 hour to 6:30 Marathon, you MUST start at 8:30am. Simply approach the timer and let him know. He will manually add you in. You will be official.

NOTE: Early starts are only for those who will do a 5:45-6:30 range marathon. We can't have anyone else go early. You will be DQed if you start early and finish faster than 5:45.

THE HISTORY

2004-2010: The race was run as the Shoreline Sharks Half Marathon and was the unofficial State Championship Half Marathon Race for Triathlon Clubs.

2011: The race was renamed The Savin Rock Half Marathon and a 5K was added. The event was opened to the public.

2015: The Marathon option was added (2 loops) and the course was USATF Measured and became an official Boston Marathon Qualifier. The 5K was moved to another date (currently Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving Day).

2020: 2 weeks before the race, Covid19 shut everything down and forced the postponement of the race to 2021.

2021: The race was pushed to 10/30 due to the Covid19 shutdowns.

2022: We are back to the last Saturday in March.
