The Race

2018 will mark the 36th year for the Sugarloaf Marathon, Maine’s oldest continuously run marathon, drawing hundreds of runners from all over the U.S. and Canada. The 2018 Sugarloaf Marathon and 15K will take place on Sunday, May 20, 2018. Registration for both races will open October 5th, with a strict limit of 1600 participants; registration will close on May 1st, or as soon as we reach the 1600 runner cap. 

As an official qualifying race for the Boston Marathon certified by the United States Track and Field Association (USATF), the Sugarloaf Marathon is popular among running enthusiasts. Despite its mountainous setting the course is primarily downhill, and ends with a gradual 16 mile descent. Marathon runners regularly record personal-best times at Sugarloaf.

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.
