Marathon runners will be shuttled from West Point Amphitheater to their start at Hickory Hill Boat Ramp and from the finish near the Eno River Rock Quarry back to West Point Amphitheater. 10-milers will just be shuttled from the finish back to West Point Amphitheater since their start is near the parking area.

Bag Check:

All runners will be issued a drop bag that will be transported to the finish line. No personal bags or duffels, and please, no valuables.

Aid Stations and Restrooms:

Aid stations will be located at select road and trail crossings along the course and are identified on the course map. However, some aid stations are more than 4 miles apart, so runners are highly encouraged to carry their own hydration device and fluids.

Aid stations will supply water, electrolyte drink (Skratch), energy gels (Honey Stinger) and basic first aid supplies.

Portable restrooms will be located at the parking area at West Point on the Eno Amphitheater, at the marathon start, and near the quarry finish. No restroom facilities will be available on the course.

Shuttles:

Morning Shuttles from West Point to the start of the Marathon will begin at 6:45. The last shuttle will leave at 7:20. The full schedule will be available closer to the race date.

Afternoon shuttles from the finish back to West Point will run regularly between 10am and 2:45pm. Finishers should expect to wait up to 30 minutes for a shuttle back to West Point. Refreshments will be available and you are encouraged to cheer on other runners as you wait.

Laurel Bridge road is a narrow, unpaved forestry access road. NO PRIVATE VEHICLES are allowed on this road during the race to keep the way clear for emergency vehicles and shuttles.

After your finish, we invite you to join us at the Amphitheater for a post-race celebration from 11am-3pm.
