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 by Sept. 25. There will be no refunds issued when switching to the 5K or 10K. After September 25th thru October 10th race changes will cost an additional $10.00. NO race changes will be made after October 10th.
