This was my first marathon, and I could not have picked a better one! Race day was rainy and windy, but that did not diminish the enthusiasm of the multitudes of volunteers. There were water/Gatorade/fuel stations every two miles or so, as well as periodic live music. The race directors had everything extremely well-organized and were both friendly and responsive to any questions or concerns. I will definitely be running this race again!

In spite of the fact that we ran it in a legitimate nor’easter, this race could not have been more fun or better supported! The vast majority of the race is along the Atlantic Ocean, and the scenery was spectacular. Volunteers were out in full force, and were friendly and helpful, as were the race organizers. I can’t wait to return next year!

This was the first year of the Turtle Trot, and overall it was a great experience! There were 1115 runners, which was far more than I expected. I had a friend pick up my bib at early pickup, so I can’t speak to how smooth it was, but he didn’t have any complaints. The shirt and medal were both very attractive. The course took us through some interesting parts of downtown Atlanta, but it definitely embodied the three tenets of summertime Atlanta running: Hot, Hilly, and Humid! My only complaint about the race is that the start could have been better organized. There were no corrals, which was fine; however, it would have been beneficial to have the announcer suggest a bit of self-seeding. I was maybe 1/5 of the way back in the corral and it took me over 30 seconds to get across the start line. Not only was everyone bunched up, but everyone was strolling toward the start. It took some time and energy to get around the walkers. Overall, though, it was a fun race on a great course!

This race was well-organized and ran through beautiful Decatur neighborhoods. It’s very hilly for a 5k, but there’s great beer at the finish, plus BBQ, so regardless of your performance, it’s a fun race.
