The Sugarloaf Marathon provides runners with spectacular views of surrounding mountain ranges and the Carrabassett River. Wildlife sightings are common, as runners share the roads and environment with the area's abundant population of moose and deer.
The setting for the race is breathtaking as it follows the Maine Scenic Highway - Route 27, winding through the beautiful mountains of Western Maine. Despite the mountainous surroundings, Sugarloaf's course is ranked among the top 15 fastest marathon courses in the nation. The first 5 miles of the marathon are flat, miles 5-10 are rolling hills with a steady two-mile climb at mile 8. The last 16 miles have an elevation loss of 980 feet. The course starts in Eustis, travels through Carrabassett Valley, and ends in Kingfield.
