New for 2014:
Your name will be printed on the race bib if you register by March 1, 2014. This turns the race bib into a collectible!
I listened to your feedback from the 2013 race!
–Mile marker signs at every mile (as well as paint on the road surface)
–Signs that can’t be missed at the turnarounds (marathon, half-marathon, 10k and 5k)
I hope you’ll find the race pricing an incredible value after you’ve experienced the event and obtained the race sweatshirt, finisher’s medal, post race barbeque, and, hopefully, an award!
The course map is located here:
The half marathon follows the marathon course. At Masthope Plank Road and Rte 590, mile 11.75, the half marathoners will turn right, as will the marathoners. The half marathoners will go out Rte 590 for about .75 miles, then turnaround and head back to the finish area.

The race features excellent apparel, finisher’s medal for the marathon and half marathon, a commemorative glass and unique race awards.
We don’t have artwork ready yet for 2014. Following is a picture of the hooded sweatshirt you will receive is in the link below. You also have the option of the embroidered jacket from last year, if you’d like. Just email me if you would prefer the jacket. It’s available in red or blue, with Two Rivers Marathon embroidered on the left chest.
There is no time limit to complete the marathon. 8 hours and up is fine.
