ABOUT 

We invite you to trod the grounds of Fair Hill for the Big Elk Marathon & Half-Marathon. You're in for 26.2 miles of rollicking terrain, on which jockeys have ridden and stallions have stridden. Get the jump out of the gate if you must, but remember: It's a marathon, not a sprint. And at the height of summer, this race has all the trappings of a sweat-stained steeplechase -- except instead of sipping a mint julep, you'll have competitors nipping at your heels. The course is a mixture of single track, double track, gravel road/DNR fire roads, bridge crossing, XC field crossings, and a creek crossing or two. The first third of the trail has a healthy amount of rock gardens to keep you alert and on your toes, while the rest of the course has a fair amount of roots to keep you engaged.
