REGISTRION FOR THE 2020 CHASING THE UNCIRON MARATHON and ALTERNATIVE HALF IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED. WITH BOSTON MARATHON SCHEDULING TO THE SAME WEEKEND WE ARE NOT SURE WHAT THE REGISTRATION PROCESS FOR BAA BOSTON MARATHON 2021 WILL BE. WE WILL REOPEN AND RESCHEDULE WHEN THE SITUATION IS CLEARER, THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND PLEASE STAY SAFE.

CHASING THE UNICORN MARATHON

was created as a last chance for runners to qualify for the Boston Marathon or improve their current seed times.

We ask that participants expect to be within ten minutes of their BQ times.

THE CHASING THE UNICORN MARATHON COURSE TIME LIMIT IS 5 HOURS 10 MINUTES

The Chasing the Unicorn Marathon is a double out-and-back course and runs concurrently with

The Alternative Half Marathon

Course: from Washington Crossing Historic Park along the Delaware Canal towpath (Delaware Canal State Park) to the south end of New Hope Pennsylvania and back. Course is concurrent with the Chasing the Unicorn Marathon, we ask that slower participants in the half marathon stay in single file and allow faster runners on their second lap of the Marathon to pass. 

IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE THE POTENTIAL FOR BQ QUALIFIERS IN THE CHASING THE UNICORN MARATHON

THE TIME LIMIT FOR THE ALTERNATIVE HALF MARATHON WILL BE 3hrs15min

RACES START AT 7:30AM

As the course is narrow wave starts of (50) participants will be sent off :30 seconds apart.

SATURDAY PACKET PICK-UP WILL BE AVAILABLE THIS YEAR. LOCATION: TBA

As the planning for the 2020 are still a bit dynamic, please consult last year's Runners Guide, located for download in the tabs to your left.

THERE ARE PARTS OF THE COURSE WE ASK YOU TO TAKE YOUR EARPHONES OUT For your safety and the safety of all park users, and taking them out let's volunteers know you can hear them and the potential hazards 

WE DON'T OFFER DISCOUNT CODES. We like to offer everyone the lowest prices we can. The earlier you register the more you save. Let's face it those other races are artificially inflating their fees so they can track where you found out about their event, and that data is often flawed.

THERE ARE NO REFUNDS or TRANSFERS. FOR DEFERRAL INFORMATION SEE runBUCKS.com policy page.
