Here's what races are available for Enigma Fireworks Marathons & Half Marathon
Runners will be taken on the lakefront paths around Caldecotte Lake to complete their chosen distance. This lapped course is a mix of hard gravel, concrete, and a few yards of mud and grass, making it a great trail run for new and experienced runners alike.
Marathon runners will complete the course 7 and a half times, and Half Marathon runners will lap the course 3 and a half times. Those running in the Anti-Clockwise Marathon will, as expected, run the course in reverse.
