Expo was non existent other than a bib pickup and a merchandise tent, no vendors whatsoever. The race medal was great and the shirt was a nice long sleeve. Food trucks at the end was a nice added benefit so overall a nice event.
The course was beautiful as you started running in a quaint neighborhood along the shoreline of Coeur d’Alene Lake and then back through McEuen Park where the race started. After going through the park you continued along the lake past NIC and along the Spokane River and then back to McEuen Park for a nice finish.
The race started in a drizzle but subsided shortly after race start and was a great temperature to run in.

The weather for WDW Marathon Weekend was great, cool in the morning and warmer as the day progressed. Early mornings was something I was told is the hardest thing about doing the Dopey Challenge. The early mornings were just part of the experience, did not seem to have an impact on us.
What was a little dis heartening was the walk to the start line. The 5K and 10K had about a mile walk to the corals and the 1/2 marathon and marathon had a good two mile walk to the corals.
Day 1 – Epcot and Expo
Day 2 – 5K and Magic Kingdom
Day 3 – 10K and Animal Kingdom
Day 4 – 1/2 Marathon and Rest
Day 5 – Marathon and Rest
Day 6 – Hollywood Studios
I was expecting the Marathon on day 5 to be much more difficult than it was but there are so many distractions from character stops, sights to see, running through the parks, water stops and music that keep your mind off of the distance you have left. The miles just seem to add up as you continue without noticing how far you’ve gone. The experience was great and was a lot of fun, but what do you expect when going to WDW.

The start of this race was very inspiring and memorable, they shot off confetti as you passed the start line and it was a great start to an otherwise uneventful race. The course was lacking scenery but what made up for it was the spectator support. Around every corner there were people cheering and encouraging with signs and it is the only race I’ve ran without both ear buds in. I was a little nervous about all the hills that were on the course, but I was pleasantly surprised they did not give me more trouble than they did.
One disappointing thing was that the medals did not come in so the race staff will have to mail everybody there medals, unfortunate but not much they could do about it. Other than that they had great volunteers, food and wonderful atmosphere to run in. The weather was great, a little on the cool side, perfect for running.

Great place for a race, the weather cooperated extremely well. Cool morning and foggy so the sun didn’t peak through and make it unbearably hot. Did not notice the humidity being too uncomfortable either. Ran along a stream and through old country roads with many neat sights and sounds. Finish line was well placed and made for great atmosphere.

This was a difficult race with many rocks and technical spots on the course. Vacation Races did a great job communicating that but as a first time trail run you go in a little skeptical and it was much more difficult than I expected. I still think it is a must do but all the Vacation Races do not disappoint with the rewards and sense of accomplishment that you feel afterwards.

It turned out to be a beautiful day after raining most of the night. The hills were tougher than I expected. I hit a wall at mile 7 and again at mile 11, that may have been because of all the walking the day and week before touring DC and then once in Gettysburg, walking around town and seeing all the monuments, there is so much to see. The swag was great (bag, medal, glass, and shirt was all worth it but was disappointed when the beer was not offered) due to COVID! Just thankful that we were able to run in person!!!

This was a great race in a beautiful place. The event was very well thought out and in the time of Covid every precaution taken. The course was moderately difficult with many hills and one long steady hill towards the beginning but the hill towards the end was the worst.

There was no expo, but race atmosphere and production did not disappoint. For a smaller race it had great benefits, race tickets, beach towel and a nice medal to boot. The shirt could have had a better design but who does it for the shirt? As far as the race, can’t beat running around DAYTONA SPEEDWAY and onto the streets to the beach and back. Unfortunately because of high tide we did not actually run on the sand but we visited it the day before during one of the 5K races that was held on the beach.

This race is growing, has always been one of my favorite events during a celebration of the town of Columbia Falls “Heritage Days”. Family atmosphere with kids races to get the younger generation excited about running.

This was a great location for a race, the course was relatively flat and very scenic. It was a great day for running, very little wind, but it was foggy at the start but as it warmed up the fog lifted and the views were magical. Great finish line!

I was really looking forward to this race as we were set to run through the Magic Kingdom and finish running through EPCOT. My brothers and wives met for a week of fun at DISNEY WORLD and it was amazing. We even got all the swag and I joke that it will be my fastest race ever.

This was my first race so I had no idea what to expect. The expo was small but was in a great location in downtown Manhattan and the course was reasonably scenic. It has inspired me to do more in the future and someday I hope to tackle a full marathon.
