This two day event will have a distance for everyone.
Our new Maine Coast Half Marathon and Bosom Buddy Relay, benefiting SMHC’s Center for Breast Care, is a gorgeous 13.1 mile loop that starts and finishes on the Biddeford campus of UNE. It shares the same finish line as the Maine Coast Marathon.
On Saturday, we have the Maine Coast Half Marathon with a course that rivals the Maine Coast Marathon for scenic beauty. We also have the Bosom Buddy Relay where two runners will team up to run 7.25 miles and 5.85 miles, respectively, to complete the Maine Coast Half Marathon Course.
On Sunday we have the Maine Coast Marathon, back for its 11th year (we had a 25 year absence from 1988-2012). We have retained the same course as 1980-1986* and runners will not be disappointed with the beauty of the Maine Coast.
Finally, for those who are looking for a full weekend of fun, there is the 39.3 Challenge. These runners will run the Maine Coast Half Marathon on Saturday and the Maine Coast Marathon on Sunday. They will get a shirt and a finisher medal for each race along with a very cool special award for completing the 39.3 Challenge.
Plan on spending the weekend and enjoying the races and the stunning natural beauty of The Maine Coast.
(Don’t wait too long to register. In 2014, the marathon sold-out in February, so don’t wait and miss-out in 2015 on one of the 1,000 marathon spots one of the 1,200 spots for the debut of the half marathon.)
*In 1987, The Maine Coast Marathon was run on a loop course that started and ended at UNE.
