A marathon run is never a complete experience without the support of the spectators. With our course layout it will be difficult to find many safe locations for spectators throughout the course. The starting line, first 2 miles through Old Nauvoo, running through Carthage, and the finish line will offer opportunities to cheer your runners on. A complete map with the best locations will be posted by May 1st. The "Runner's Guide" will have a map with the best suggestions. Be safe by observing the traffic that will be operating around you and the marathon course.
