The marathon will start from the Marlboro Campus at 7 a.m. ET. Competitors have until 1:30 p.m. ET to finish the race as that is when the course closes.

For any spectators looking to catch the race live, the race organizers suggest supporting racers at the finish line at Greenfield Community College.
