Course Description

Courses don't get much flatter than the Seabrook Lucky Trail Marathon.

The marathon course is four loops on the Seabrook Trails, starting at Meador Park, proceeding to Pine Gully Park and returning to Meador Park. The first mile is on city streets and the remainder is on the packed dirt and crushed granite Seabrook Trails.

Although the course is extremely flat, there are a lot of turns that can slow down your pace. Also, the weather can be bit warm for ideal marathon racing. However, if there is ideal weather like in 2010, the course can be very fast.
