The minimum age for the Marathon is 18 years old. For the Half Marathon, our general suggestion is a minimum of 16 years of age with at least 2 year of experience running. All registration under 18 requires a parent/guardian signature. A request for an exception can be made to the race director at

Ideas for information to include (but not limited to) Will a parent or adult be with the child/ children at all times?

  • Will the child be running or walking the event?
  • If either of these children have participated in similar length distances (half marathon, 10 miler or 10K)? If so, please submit which race and their finishing times
  • Training experience in number of years

These are general questions that can help the race director consider the request in regards to safety at the event.
