Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q – How is the marathon run?

A – The marathon will consist of 204 laps on the upstairs running track.  Runners will change directions every 30  minutes.  (Each runner will complete the lap he/she is on before changing directions)

Q – Will runners receive splits?
A – There will be a display clock at the START/FINISH line displaying times the entire marathon.  You will run by
this clock every lap.  In addition we will use chip timing and your lap splits will be available on
        line after the race.    1 mile is approximately 7 ½  laps.

Q – What about spectators?
A – There room for spectators, have friends and family come cheer you on for the entire marathon.
  Spectators must stay away form the lap counters and stay clear of the running area of the track.

Q – Will there be music?
A – Music will be played through the Rec Center sound system the entire marathon.

Q – How does changing direction every 30 minutes work?
A – At the 30,60, 90, 120, etc. minute mark we will place a large traffic cone on the opposite side of the track from the
timing mats.  When each runner runs past the cone, they turn and change direction.  The runners
       who have just changed direction will move   to the outside lanes until all runners have changed direction.  This usually takes less
than 2 minutes.

There is a 6-HOUR time limit for the Maple Leaf Indoor Marathon.
