PORTLAND (Sep 24, 09): Enlyten Sports and Health Strips is proud to be a vendor at the Maine Marathon and Expo on October 4th in Portland Maine. “We are extremely excited about being part of such a prestigious running event. Many runners in Maine and throughout New England are already familiar and using our Electrolyte and Energy Strips.” said, Clayton Fowlie, Head of the East Coast Enlyten Team.
“The performance results from the use of our strips are extremely positive from runners, cyclist and tri-athletes alike. We have been told they are much more effective and efficient than Gu, Gels, Beans and electrolyte and energy drinks.” Fowlie , continued.
Start Time: 7:45 a.m.
Registration will be held Saturday, October 3, noon-6 p.m. at Sullivan Gym, University of Southern Maine, Portland and race day, 5:30-7:30 a.m.
The Peak Performance Maine Marathon features an out-and-back course for all three races -- marathon, relay and half marathon.
The spectator-friendly course starts and finishes along our beautiful inner bay -- the Back Cove. The first and last four miles are mostly flat. All three races are together for the first six miles before the half marathon heads back to Portland. In between, runners enjoy Mackworth Point in Falmouth (just north of Mackworth Island), a short but gorgeous detour off Route 1. The course then returns to Route 1 and turns onto Route 88, where runners pass many stately homes. The half marathon course includes rolling hills between Miles 4 and 8. After that it is mostly flat on its return to Portland, again crossing the very scenic Martin's Point Bridge area. The marathon and relay continue along Route 88 to Yarmouth for a 2.5-mile loop around a rural neighborhood before rejoining Route 88 for the return trip to Portland. The marathon course features a mixture of rolling hills and flat sections between Miles 4 and 17, and is mostly flat or downhill for the final nine miles. There is a limit of 2,800 runners for the marathon and half marathon combined.
