Marathon Stats: Started in 2018, 384.55 loops = 26.2 miles, 1 aid station every loop, 6 hour cut-off.
Qualification Standards: None.
Since the founding in 2018, the race is not accepted as a Boston Marathon qualifier, a Western States qualifier, nor does it earn you points towards UTMB.
It should be noted, however, that finishers of the 2018 Sandlot Marathon completed fifteen 100-mile (or longer) races during the seven months following the Sandlot Marathon, including several age group victories. During the same time period in 2017, the group completed only six 100-mile or longer races.
Legally the race can not claim to be solely responsible for the improvement, but we can say that Sandlot Marathon is not not responsible.
