Parking will be tight so PLEASE carpool with as many fellow runners as possible. 

Join us for the first ever Hotter Than July 1/4 & 1/2 Marathon to be run on the amazingly runnable Waverly Park Trail System! Choose from a 1 lap 1/4 marathon (6.55 miles) or a 2 lap half marathon option through these wonderfully underrated trails. Runners will receive a race shirt, finisher/overall awards, professional chip timing, free race photos, and a beautiful course on beginner-friendly trails.

Split times will be recorded and text messaging of splits and finish times will be available.

We will be enforcing a 3:30 cutoff time (~16 minute/mile pace) for the half marathon. 

Aid Stations will be located at mile 4 (no cutoff), 6.5 (1:45 cutoff for the half), and 10 (2:40 cutoff for the half) for the half marathon and mile 4 for the 1/4 marathon. They will feature typical aid station support. This is a cupless event and runners will be expected to carry at least 12 oz of fluids for the half marathon. 

A course map can be found below. The loop runs counter clockwise. 1/4 Marathon runners complete one loop while 1/2 Marathon runners complete two.
