New: Besides cash awards to overall winners in the marathon and half marathon, we are offering cash awards in the marathon for sub 2:45 males; 3:05 females – and in the half marathon for sub 1:10 males; 1:30 females. See Marathon Awards and Half Marathon Awards for details.

2015 Recap: Despite warm temperatures, cloud cover and mist in the early morning helped to keep the weather in check. And while it was generally not a day for PRs, the PR Bell got quite a workout. Congratulations to our returning champion, Titus Rotich of Kenya, who was our overall marathon winner in 2:24:25 and Karen Smith who ran 3:08:51 to capture our female marathon title. In the half marathon, Youssef Rochdi of Morocco (now living in NJ) set a new male half marathon event record with a 1:09:27 to collect a $500 bonus and Heather Chapman who ran 1:30:07. The overall winning relay team was Fusion who ran a 2:38:20. Overall, 282 of our infamous gender specific bobble head runner awards were given out along with over $7000 in prize money.
