It’s as special as it is rare.

If you’re lucky, one day you might find a unicorn. It’s truly special – magical, even – and it can only exist with just the right circumstances. When it comes it changes lives, makes everything better, and you never forget how it made you feel. Sometimes, unicorns just vanish, a fleeting magical wonder. On an even more rare occasion… it evolves. And by changing and adapting – it lasts. It’s as special as it is rare. The Millinocket Marathon and Half is that unicorn, and in 2018 – it’s 4th year – it once again evolved, and is just as special as ever.

On this episode, Coach Darrell talks a bit about the difficulties of the winter season, then dives into the good stuff. Gary Allen (Race Director & Founder of Millinocket Marathon) and Pattie McNally (social media wizard) join Coach Darrell on this episode. They talk about why and how this event came to be, as well as how it’s evolved through the years. Pattie shares how the race’s social media works, and why it’s so special. Later, Gary shares exactly what his job really is as Race Director of this unique event. Finally, Coach Darrell shares a recap of his experience this year, and breaks down exactly why this race is so different, and so special.
