COVID-19 Updates

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, our volunteer race organizers are closely monitoring city, state, regional, and national guidance on events, gatherings, and races of every size. We are currently proceeding as planned. As we get closer to race day, we will continue to provide updates on our website, social media channels, and through our email newsletter. Due to the strange nature of reality right now, we have frozen race fees at the current rate, and these fees will not increase until July 1.

As an all-volunteer, nonprofit event, the Gorham Savings Bank Maine Marathon is built on community and charitable giving. We hope and believe we will continue that tradition by donating to this year’s amazing group of race beneficiaries – which you can read about here. But race organizers also want to ensure a smooth experience in case we must cancel this year’s event.

IN THE EVENT OF A CANCELLATION, the Maine Marathon will offer registered participants the choice of what they’d like to do with their paid race fee. Participants can choose one of the following options:

  • Donate their race fee to one of our 2020 race beneficiaries
  • Defer their registration to the 2021 event
  • Receive a refund of their registration fee minus the processing fee

This policy applies to both currently registered runners and those who register between now and the day of the race (or its cancellation). We hope this policy will provide the Maine Marathon community with some certainty in these uncertain times.
