Macon Tracks Running Club's


and Half Marathon
6th Annual
Make It By Midnight
Marathon & Half Marathon
Macon, Georgia -- Saturday July 13, 2013
Course: The course begins and ends at the Lake Wildwood Clubhouse, Clubhouse Road,
Macon, GA. The course will be a repeated 6.55 mile loop with rolling hills. The race will take place on
residential roads.
Awards: Finisher medals and other swag will be given out to all Marathoners and Half
Marathoners. Also, a tiara will be given to those who finish before midnight and a pumpkin for
those who don’t.
Goal: The goal is to finish up as close to midnight (without going over) as possible.
Starting time: You will predict your finish time so that the starting times will vary with each
runner. For example, a four hour predicted runner will start at 8 PM. A six hour marathon runner
will start at 6 PM. Likewise, a half marathoner with a predicted 2 hour finishing time will start at
10 PM. All participants will sign in with their starting time taken from the official clock. After
finishing, participants will sign out with their finishing time taken once again from the official
clock on the registration table. Because of the scattered starting times all runners must keep track
of their own race time (runner’s honor). Finishing times will be posted at
Limits and cutoffs: There will be a limit of 175 runners. The cutoff time will be 1:00 AM.
Aid Stations: There will be two manned aid stations on the course. The main aid station will
include an ultra-style spread with PB&J, sports drink, salty stuff, gel, etc.
Cost: $45

but it is strongly suggested that you carry a water bottle. The weather will be hot and humid in
July – please plan your run accordingly.
