Cary, North Carolina (United States of America) - "Tobacco Road Marathon & Half Marathon". The Tobacco Road Marathon & Half Marathon will be the first of its kind in NC to embrace the town of Cary and country roads of Western Wake County. The marathon features over 20 miles of the American Tobacco Trail. The rest of the course is be flat and fast with a downhill finish and a must do for the Boston Qualifier! Both races will begin at 7am on Brooks Park Lane and head towards the entrance of Thomas Brooks Park. When you cross that finish line with a Boston Marathon qualifying (BQ) time or a personal best (PR for personal record), ring our celebratory bell so we can all share in your accomplishment! The bell is just beyond the finish line. After you make it through the finish line, collect your medal, and refuel at our post-race party, stop by our awards table. We have a special Boston Qualifying T-shirt for you. Be proud of your accomplishment, we sure are! Qualifying standards for the Boston Marathon are posted on their site and are defined by the Boston Athletic Association. Keep in mind that 10% of Tobacco Road Marathon runners qualify for the Boston Marathon; that's why our event, conducted on the fast, flat American Tobacco Trail is known as a Boston Qualifier.
