The 2021 Savin Rock Marathon AND the Savin Rock Half Marathon are the RRCA State Championship Races!
(Registration, Packet Pick-Up, Start, Finish, EVERYTHING is at the Savin Rock Conference Center)
From 2004-2010, this race was run as The Shoreline Sharks Half Marathon. The race was renamed in 2011, honoring the great venue that we have. Since 2011 this race is open to ALL ! This is just too good to keep to ourselves! Most roads will be closed (Police at intersections) and The Savin Rock Conference Center is open for registration, bathrooms and awards.
Our 10th Annual event includes the Marathon (2 loops) and Half Marathon (1 loop)
USATF CERTIFIED COURSE #CT15002JHP. BOSTON MARATHON QUALIFIER
The race will be held on Saturday March 27, 2021 at 9:00am.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE STARTING AT 9AM WHICH IS 1 HOUR LATER THAN IN THE PAST TO ACCOMODATE THOSE WHO WILL TRAVEL BY TRAIN TO THE WEST HAVEN STATION. THE FIRST TRAIN ARRIVES AT 7:50AM, GIVING ENOUGH TIME TO GET TO THE RACE AND REGISTER. THE STATION IS ONLY 1.5 MILES AWAY.
About 1/3 of the course is along Long Island Sound.
Aid stations every 2 miles beginning at Mile 2.5 stocked with Poland Spring Water, Gatorade & GU.
The Savin Rock Conference Center hosts registration, bathrooms (plus porto-lets), awards, etc. Plenty of parking and a nice large place to stay until the start.
Transponder Timing and Results with timing splits at 7.5, 13.1, 20.6 and 26.2. Porto-Lets are at those miles also. Results available immediately following your finish with Finisher Receipts and streaming on-line. Results posted on www.shorelinesharks.com following the race.
Men's and Women's Cut Short Sleeve Tech Shirts for all entrants.
Custom finisher medals for all finshers (Marathon & Half Marathon are different)
Custom awards to the top 3 Overall men and women PLUS in every age division (10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75+.
All finishers receive a "Finisher Receipt" when they cross the finish line. Award winners can immediately get their awards from the awards table.
Half Marathon = 5:00 (WALKER FRIENDLY!!!) GO FOR IT!
Marathon = 6:30 (WE CAN ACCOMMODATE 8:30AM START TO ADD 30 MINS)
For the Marathon we have a 3:10 First Loop cutoff (after official start time)
The drop-down guarantee: If any Marathon runner finishes 1 loop (Half Marathon) and does not finish the entire 26.2 (2 loops) will be considered an official Half Marathon Finisher with your Half Marathon split time. This gives you an option if the day isn't going well for you. At the end you can exchange your shirt and get a Half Marathon Medal too! (Supplies may be limited)
