The race starts and ends in Cathedral Square. It is well organized and well attended. It is actually part of a running festival weekend, including a full marathon, half, 10k, 5k and kids run. All the races start at different times.
Even with Covid-19, there were about 5000 participants this year (down from around 10k in previous years). This is the first race where I’ve been required to wear a mask to the starting line and after the race. (they give out medals and face masks!). Route is scenic – first along the Neris river to the forests north of Vilnius. Then back along the other side of the river. The full marathon continues to Vingis park. Both have a short leg through old town before returning to Cathedral Square. Lots of water stops and even medical assistants roving the course on bicycles. Only a small amount of the course is on cobblestones. If you’re in the Baltics – check this one out!

The Good:
The promoters do a great job with the aid stations. Plenty of water and sports drink every mile or so.
Entry includes a nice technical t-shirt and some salad dressing.
The course is almost all on paved surfaces and is flatter than my sister in law.
Community Beer sponsored the race and provides a free beer at the end!
There is actually some shade on the course.

The bad:
Dallas can be a little hot in August.
There were some long haired California hippies running this year.
Not very much shade.
