The FTC Marathon will start at the Hawthorne Trail Head of the Gainesville/Hawthorne State Trail. The course follows the flat and fast paved bike bath out for 3.27 miles and then turns around and comes back. Each loop will be 1/4 of a Marathon making it easy for family and friends to view the race. The tree canopy on both sides of the trail will provide both shade and low wind conditions for optimal running!
Participating in any event obviously carries a certain amount of risk, but we are committed to doing everything possible to lower the risk as much as possible and keep your safety and the community's safety as the number one priority.
