The course cut-off time will be 7 hours from the start of the Marathon. Runners must reach the turnaround for the marathon at the T.Stell Newman Visitor Center in Sumay within 4 hours from the gun start. The cut-off time will be enforced at each checkpoint due to limited duration of traffic control, security operation and event operation. The runners who fail pass through the checkpoint before cut-off time, will be disqualified from the race. Furthermore, trailing runners who lag excessively behind the cut-off time pace may be asked to leave the course at any time.

The course has been certified by AIMS/IAAF and is a Boston Marathon qualifier. AIMS (Association of International Marathons and Distance Races) is affiliated with the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF), the world governing body for the sport of track and field.
