Birch Bay Ghost Marathon is a frying pan loop where you run the handle out and two loops before returning to the start/finish. The distance is not certified but very close.
Birch Bay Ghost Mega-Half Marathon is a frying pan loop where you run the handle out and one loop before returning to the start/finish. Please note the half is 15.1 miles due to the loop nature of the course.
There will be two fixed aid stations. The start/finish line will be abandoned until the leader of the 15.1 mile option heads back. There is a major intersection at Harborview / Birch Bay Dr you pass twice before heading home.
