CERTIFIED COURSE- With favorable elevations and weather, the course is conducive
to setting your best times and provides an excellent opportunity to qualify for the
Boston Marathon. The Marathon course is certified by the USATF. The course is an out
and back course with minimal elevation change. Most of the race is run on the flats
going downhill for about 74 feet at the start and running back up the 74 feet a
couple of miles before the finish.
MILEAGE MARKERS – The race is marked off each mile, with hydration stations at
almost every marker. There will be a couple of first aid stations on the course as well.
RACE COURSE - Due to the nature of the Yuma Territorial Marathon and Half
Marathon Course only registered runners will be allowed on the course. Bicycles,
strollers and unregistered runners will not be allowed on the course. Runners will be
running on the shoulder of a highway. Remember, that although this is a closed
course with law enforcement providing traffic control, you are still running on the side
of a highway. Please be aware of your surroundings at all times and be safe.
