    I’m a little confused – is this marathon one you can use to qualify for Boston? Is the course certified, etc? If so, this is a great option to the Chicago Marathon which, in my opinion, has gotten way too big and many of the people who were lucky enough to get chosen in the lottery can’t even finish it because they didn’t train properly and just entered for bragging rights.

      This marathon is a Boston Qualifier, and while not as fast as Chicago (not many marathons are!), it still features some nice long flat straightaways with a few hills throughout the course.

    What is the course time for the marathon?

      The course support limit is 6 hours. After 6 hours, you must obey all traffic laws. However, the finish line and timing will be available until the last finisher crosses the line regardless of time.
