Left feeling a bit in the twilight zone after this race. It’s literally called the MS Blues marathon, and advertises “live blues bands every 2 mi of the course,” yet there was no music! There was ONE guitarist picking softly at mi 4, and two guitarists playing around at mi 7. That was literally it. The website mentions pacers yet there were none. The aid stations were bare bones. Most had only water. A few had gatorade. Only ONE had gu. No other nutrition so bring your own! The address for packet pickup was the Capitol building, yet the tent was across the street and down a hill (not visible from street) without any signage..

Overall I don’t think you get your value from this race. It felt pretty low-budget and poorly organized.
