MMR Race Preview

A group of veteran runners will lead a race course preview on Mount Marathon from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday June 21.

This is the only date and time offered this year unlike in years past.

The tours will focus on helping participants travel safely on the bottom third of the mountain. Tour leaders will guide uphill until “Squirrel’s Inn” and downhill through the creek bed. Multiple options for descending off the mountain to the road portion will be covered.


Anyone who is signed up for this year’s race or interested in a future race is encouraged to participate. There is no fee but participants must sign a waiver.

The group will meet at the picnic table near the gate on upper Lowell Canyon Road beginning at 12:30 p.m.
