ABOUT THE COURSE

The Guam International Marathon, including the half marathon, 10K and 5K, are out and back race courses that start and end at the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) in Tumon. Runners start immediately in front of GVB in Tumon. All races proceed north on Pale San Vitores Road before taking a right hand turn on Route 14A (Tumon Bay Road). At Marine Corps Drive (K-Mart intersection) runners will take a right hand turn and head south.

The marathon 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.

5K race participants will make a U turn in front of the Century Plaza Building in Tamuning and retrace their route back to GVB in Tumon, all other runners will continue running south on Marine Corps Drive.

10K race participants will make a U turn just past the Alupang Beach Tower in Tamuning at the Trinchera Beach Park and then retrace their route back to GVB in Tumon.

Half Marathon race participants reach the half-way point of their race on Marine Corps Drive just past the Governor's Complex, Adelup. Half Marathon runners will then make U turn and retrace their route back to GVB in Tumon.

Runners will run almost to the commercial Port before making a U turn and retrace their route back along Cabras Island Road. Upon reaching Marine Corps Drive, runners will take a right hand turn and continue heading south on Marine Corps Drive.
