Except for one hill, mostly flat course. The race was well organized and the expo was fine. I appreciate that the organizers actually made some attempt to enforce corrals (which were color coded to your bib). Helped reduce the number of walkers in front. The medals were decent and the shirts are comfortable except that I guess I ordered the wrong size and there was no shirt exchange. I was given an email address to see about getting a new shirt but they have responded yet (only 4 days). Hopefully they will. Philly was nicer than I had anticipated (or maybe I just stayed in the right part of town). Was a nice race for marking Pennsylvania off my list of states.

The Papa John 10 miler is flat except for about 3 miles through Iroquois Park which has a couple of big hills. You finish on the football field at Cardinal Stadium. Shirts are nice and you get a decent medal too. Lines for postrace food is crazy though and I didn’t want to wait that long. Very popular race for locals.

The race is run mostly parallel to the beach but because of dunes and buildings, you never really see it. I did go to the beach the day before the race and it was a nice, clean beach.

The course was flat except for having to go over a bridge twice. The medals are large (the do call it the Big Ass Medal Series) but the shirts weren’t tech shirts. They were nice t-shirts, but regular t-shirts all the same.

The organizers did do a great job with email updates leading up to the race. Post race you got a bottle of water, a banana, a beer, and your choice of bbq or pizza. I will say the bbq was pretty good. Parking near the start/finish line was plentiful and easy.

Overall, not a bad race if you don’t require lots of bells and whistles. The island itself was nice and had a couple of good places to eat.

This is a very well organized, family friendly 5 mile (1.25 option too) run/walk in Iroquois Park. The course can be a little tough as it is 2 miles up the hill, a loop around the top, and 2 miles down the hill. Always have very nice Brooks long sleeve running shirts. Decent snacks at the end as well. A nice little tradition for Thanksgiving Day.

If you want the opportunity to run on the Las Vegas strip, then this is the race for you. If you want a well organized running experience, you may want to pass. The waves and corrals ended up being more of a suggestion than a rule which meant plenty of walkers blocking traffic early and often. Post race was blah. The medals,though nice, were very small. I have no plans to repeat this race.

Great crowd support throughout the race, but very crowded streets at times. I spent a lot of time and energy running around walkers in the middle of the road and avoiding spectators. BUT, the organization is excellent, awesome expo, and cheering crowds for the entire 26.2. There is a reason over 40,000 run this race. Just don’t expect a lot of elbow room.

I ran the half marathon and missed a lot of the great scenery. A lot of the race is running through neighborhoods or just areas where people live near the road. Many people were out to support and many houses had sprinklers, hoses, etc for the runners to use to cool off. Very nice medals for all the races (I ran the 5K the day before). Nice tech shirts. I still use both to run in. All in all, a good experience.

The towns are small towns but the people are extremely friendly and supportive. One bar owner told me this race is their biggest tourist event of the year. Finding a room may be a problem if you don’t book one early. The pasta and lobster prerace meal was great and we had a great time talking to all the different runners from all the different states. The Bay of Fundy itself is awesome and there are a couple of really neat lighthouses nearby. You are within a few hours drive of Acadia National Park, Hopewell Rocks, Saint John, NB and more. Was a great choice for a vacation race. I was extremely glad I chose this for my Maine race even though almost the entire half is in Canada (the finish is in Lubec, ME right after you cross the border). You will need a passport or passport card for the race though. Border guards from both countries were nice and helpful.

Who could ask for more than running from the top of snow covered mountains, next to a roaring stream, through breathtaking scenery. All downhill but extremely beautiful. The most scenic race I have participated in (at least for the first 12 miles). The altitude was a little bothersome for me (flatlander) for the first couple of miles but I would absolutely run this again. Very nice medal. A little blah on the shirt though.

This race is an example of you get what you pay for. A very inexpensive race that checked Arkansas off my list. I was hoping for a scenic country race. Instead, I spent most of the time avoiding road kill. I love to run some of the small town races, this wasn’t one of them.

The people associated with the race were nice enough but I didn’t get to participate in the postrace meal as I never received directions as to its location, only to find out later that is was in the school cafeteria. The shirts are not tech shirts, but I guess you shouldn’t expect that for the price. The “wood” medals were a disappointment.

Of the 25 states I have completed so far, this was the most disappointing.
