All the Martian courses are wide, traffic free, beautiful and lightly rolling.
Certification numbers are:
Meteor 10K - MI17008MN
Martian Half Marathon - MI13006SH
(Note: Once in our history (2013), Hines Drive was impassible due to flooding and alternate courses were used: Half Marathon - MI13025SH, Full Marathon - MI13024SH)
Note: The 10K and Half Marathon all leave and return to the Start/Finish via the same route. Please refer to the 10K online map (hint: use Full Screen) for a detailed view of the Start & finish.
The Martian Marathon has 391 feet of elevation gain.
Aid stations approximately every 2 miles with Absopure water and Gatorade. Two energy gel stops in the Half Marathon and four in the Marathon. Bathrooms every 5 miles, maybe even some real ones with flush toilets!
The only issue is gravity, which we are in process of correcting. Scientists from both Mars and Earth are working together on a diversionary, planetary, orbital plan that should reduce gravitational pull for up to 4 hours on race day. This displaced gravity will be transported by traditional warp methods to be distributed evenly over all other spring marathon dates.
