Field House Parking Lot
Runners enjoy a piece of history as they run the runways!
Runners in the half marathon, like those running the 5K as well as the one-mile run, will get to enjoy one of the flattest race courses imaginable — long stretches of the race route are in fact perfectly flat. The race also features a newly redesigned course for 2015, as the race organizers gained full permission to use the full length of the runways for the first time in the race’s history.
From the starting line right on the airport runway, runners first make a loop all the way to the end of the runway, where they make the turn and then run all the way to the other end of the runway, before turning off onto Orion Street.
The course then brings runners around a U-shaped curve all the way over to the other side of the airport complex, where they’ll run a second time on the runway, this time for its full length. The final few miles of the half marathon unfold along streets the runners have already covered, bringing them back in to the finish line inside an airport hangar just off the runway.
Though they may not realize it while they’re on the course, runners will be in the midst of literary history while they’re in Brunswick, as this was the town where Harriet Beecher Stowe penned her now-legendary “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” while her husband worked as a professor at Bowdoin College.
