The full mull marathon has a 6-hour course time limit and the half marathon has a 4:30 time limit. If you are unable to make certain checkpoints by the time needed to meet the six-hour limit, we will pick you up and move you forward to the next checkpoint, and average your current pace time accordingly to add to your overall finish time. Please allow us to do this as we have to meet road closure opening times.
