A few notes from the organizers at the Caribou Marathon (below).

BENNETT DRIVE: Most of the road will be shut down for the race and town festival.

COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are local, you know that the river has reclaimed parts of River Rd on a permanent basis.  This does NOT affect the half marathon.  However, we have to reroute the full marathon. Yes; this affects the USATF certification. YES; we will have a new certified route well before the race.

NOTE TO RUNNERS: You will start and finish in the same area where there will be an abundance of restrooms as well as (limited) showers, post-race snacks, and a warm drink station. There will be a potato bar & beer at the finish line for all runners. The Caribou Wellness Center is heated and on-site for your comfort.
