The Flying Pig didn’t hold back in any aspect when it came to celebrating their 20th anniversary! The swag was above and beyond, giving half and full marathon participants not only a tech t-shirt, but a finishers jacket and an embroidered blanket! They did a great job with the organization of the corrals, which kept the course open for participants, especially when the half and full split off at mile 8. Be aware, they warn you about the hills for a reason. There are many of them, and they tend to be long and winding from mile 5 to 19. The “pig” theme is present throughout every aspect of this event. On the course you can look forward to samples of bacon, “pig” Newtons, and graHAM crackers just to name a few. I’d highly recommend this race to anyone looking to check off Ohio on this 50 state list.

One of the local races put on by RunDenver Series that takes you out and back along the Cherry Creek Dam. The course provides you beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains and the reservoir. The “out” is very much downhill, so take advantage because it’s a steep climb back up the side of the dam that starts around mile 9. The one aspect that was very disheartening to me as a runner was the volunteers st the water station. The first one you come upon had people standing there talking to one another rather than handing out water to runners who needed it, and very few of the cups on the table were filled. On the way back that same table was packed up by the time I passed it and the volunteers were walking towards the finish line far sooner than the cut off time for the half if I might add. Other than that, they give out solid medals to all participants, which are unique to the distance you’ve run. They also change the swag through the series, so I’ll definitely give them another shot to collect a beanie, compression socks, long sleeve and short sleeve tech shirts at the different races within the series. Worth signing up if you’re local.

If this is not already on your “must do marathons” list, you best add it towards the top! From the moment you enter the expo center you are swept up in excitement the of the event! If you’re not able to stay at a hotel close to downtown don’t fret, you are still able to easily access the start line using public transportation. They do an amazing job with organization in terms of the corrals. Be sure to submit your best half marathon or marathon time, as you will otherwise be placed in the very last corral and have awhile to wait to kick off your race. Regardless, there’s no better way to see the ins and out of this amazing city. The crowd embraces your from the very start to the very end of the race, which is the best motivation of all!

Fredericksburg, VA was my adopted home, so this race will always be meaningful to me! It incorporated portions of my daily running route, but heighten the experience with great meaning by representing those who protect our country throughout the course. You run along portions of the local canal trial and are swept through the street of downtown Freddy. You’ll forget how difficult it just was to ascend hospital hill, and instead are filled with an overwhelming feeling of pride for your country when you run under the massive American flag just before the finish line. I’d highly recommend this race!

What I loved about this race was that you kick of your run next to the Washington monument. You proceed to run towards, maybe not directly in front of, a variety of other very notable monuments, such as the Lincoln Memorial. Running over the bridge towards Arlington cemetery was quite amazing as well. Be aware that this is a point-to-point course, not a loop, so have your uber/lyft app ready and be prepared to pay a MASSIVE surcharge to return to the start. Otherwise you’re stuck attempting to funnel into the metro, which has been severally backed up the 2 years I’ve run it with racers all funneling on one line. Kind of leaves you with a sour end of race day.

One of those races that gives you a small town feel from start of finish. They take great pride in this event, and put on a nice “warm up” (expo) and “cool down” event for participants. One of the best features is that it starts and end at NYSEG stadium, meaning there are plenty of restrooms within the stadium for runners to access pre-race. Binghamton doesn’t have the greatest scenery when it comes to their downtown strip; however, you are able to cross 4 bridges throughout the course, which lives up to its namesake. They didn’t cut corners with their medal or their race shirts. Last year they gave runners a bright green and blue quarter-zips pullover, which is still one of my favorite pieces of racing attire I’ve collected thus far!

This race is what made me fall in love with the marathon distance. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off my marathon career than in the “happiest place on earth.” Disney puts on an expo like no other I’ve ever seen. I will cherish my Cinderella NB sneakers forever! This one calls for an early start, as they need to funnel everyone through the course before opening the parks, but the overall experience was so worth the 5:00AM start time. If you stay at one of the Disney resorts you have access to buses to transport you to Epcot for the start and then back home at the finish. So worth it! Be aware that the race does consist of what feels like long endless stretches of road between the parks; however, Disney strategically places characters and local bands along these portions to keep you entertained. I had been to Disney World 13 times prior to running this race, and I have to say, I now look at Disney completely differently having run through it. So many memories are made along this course. Nothing will ever top running through Cinderella’s castle with my brother by my side. This is a must-do marathon for all levels runners!
