Friends or relatives wanting to spectate along the course will want to visit our special Party Zones at miles 7, 13 and 19 on the marathon course and mile 7 on the half marathon course. Each location will feature music, refreshments, giveaways, and an on-air personality. These Party Zones will serve as a hub for spectators to show their support and enthusiasm.
