Location – Everything now happens at the Erie Runners Club Beach 1 Pavilion on Presque Isle State Park. This location will be the start and finish for the marathon. All race participants must park at Waldameer or the Ridge Center and ride the shuttle buses or walk down the hill.
It doesn’t get much flatter with less than a 250 foot total change in elevation for the marathon. The running surface is mostly asphalt but there is still about a third that is concrete. However, most of the course offers a grass surface along the paved surface should you choose to run there. There is a considerable amount of shade and sun on the course so it just depends upon if your glass is half full or half empty. This is an all volunteer run race with a cap of 2200. We do not offer race tracking and pace groups are not guaranteed. The course is a Boston Qualifier and our new course in 2017 had a 44% BQ rate, second only to Boston itself.
