Note: This CANNOT be combined with other Challenges (IE. Port City Challenge)

 

The marathon and half marathon has always had a prominent place in the hearts and minds of athletes. It represents the ultimate athletic efforts where the human body, mind and soul are tested to their limits.

One of the best things about running, if not the best, is being able to go out and run with a friend. So with that in mind the Marathon by the Sea Event Weekend has created the “Two by Two Maritime Marathon or Half Marathon Challenge”. This is your opportunity to leverage your running experience to assist a friend, family member or neighbor. Together you will accept the challenge to be part of a team that commits to not just event day running but to the 12 to 18 week training schedule.

There are only three rules:
1) You must register together for the challenge as a team
2) You must start together
3) You must finish together (chip time must register within 5 seconds of one another)

Bling (each team member will receive):
1. Marathon or Half Marathon event medal
2. Two by Two Maritime Challenge Medallion
3. Marathon event shirt and all amenities
