Icebreaker Indoor Marathon

The Most Unique 26.2 Miles Of Your Life

General Information

The marathon is limited to 130 participants and is expected to reach its capacity prior to race-day. Runners will need to finish approximately 94.9 laps around the track to complete the marathon. The race will end on the front stretch of the running track. There is a 6-hour time limit. Those who are still on the track after 6 hours are not guaranteed a finish time or finisher's medal. The course has been USATF-certified.

All registrants will receive a specially-designed shirt and a goodie bag. All finishers will receive a Silver Medal.

Aid Stations and Storage

There will be a large refreshment station at one end of the track. Runners can keep water bottles in a designated area near the station. Volunteers will be on hand to fill runners' bottles with water and sports drinks upon request. Runners should bring their own bottles as cups will not be allowed or provided due to spillage concerns. There will be another designated area for runners to store extra clothes, drinks, gel packs, energy bars, etc. Each runner will have his or her own designated storage space.


The top three male and female overall finishers will be given awards at the awards ceremony.

Lap Counting

The race will be chip-timed. The scorer will use this to get lap counts for runners. There may be a scoreboard to display lap counts. Runners can also request a lap count when they go past the scorer's table on the front stretch, and a volunteer will call of their count the next time around. Several running watches such as Garmin Forerunners have lap tracking capabilities and runners are free to use those to keep track of laps.
