I've run the marathon at Umstead and enjoyed birding while running. I swear the nuthatches were laughing at me the whole time. It's a big park so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Unlike road marathons they have a vary limited field, only 207 this year. I'd go to the race website and look at the route. There are areas of the park the runners don't go.

Here's the link to the map.

Just a heads'-up to birders that there is a big (runners') Marathon in
Umstead State Park, Wake Co, NC, on Saturday, March 4, 2017. Areas
accessed via the Glenwood/70 (Crabtree) entrance are most affected,
but overall, it is NOT a good day to try and bird there!
