Due to Covid-19 if we have to cancel the 2020 WhistleStop Marathon & Half-Marathon we will refund 1/2 your paid registration fee. We spend all the money we receive from runners on preparing for each event in advance, from buying all the shirts and medals to paying for advertising and business operations, including our employees’ salaries. This means that if WE canceled or postponed because of weather, pandemics, or other forces beyond our control, we won’t be able to provide FULL refunds.

All participants in Marathon must be 16 years of age or older and all participants in the Half-Marathon must be 12 years of age or older.
There will be no transfer of numbers allowed.
No automobiles, bicycles, baby joggers, roller skies, inline skates, pets or unofficial participants will be allowed on the race course.

Finisher Shirts and Finisher Medals will be awarded to finishers of the WhistleStop Marathon & Half-Marathon within the 6 hour time clock.

Walking the Half Marathon?
We do not have a walking division for the WhistleStop Marathon or the Half-Marathon. The WhistleStop Marathon runs on a 6 hour clock. Walking the Full Marathon within a 6 hour clock is nearly impossible and is discouraged. Because of the 6 hour clock walking however the Half Marathon is very doable and quite fun.
Walkers are asked to use racer etiquette, this includes lining up after the runners at the start lines, to stay on the right hand side of the course and please, do not walk three or four abreast on the trail. Make sure you allow runners to pass on the trail.

Marathon registrants will be allowed to switch to the Half-Marathon if requested in writing or email us at officemgr@visitashland.com by Sept. 21. There will be no refunds issued when switching to the 5K or 10K. After September 21st thru October 8th race changes will cost an additional $10.00. NO race changes will be made after October 6th.
