This is a wonderful race! Out in the boonies, no one around, don’t plan on crowd support to get over the hills! This is a very hilly course. Most claim the worst hill is around mile 9.5, I feel most of the hills could be considered just as bad. My least favorite is around mile 8. Wide open turn on to the highway frontage road and the wind is always terrible AND there is a huge, endless hill. The very best part is the start and finish. It is inside! No worries about the weather and there is ample parking. I’ve run this race 4 years now. No plans to stop!

This race should be on everyone’s bucket list. Starts high in Snoqualamie Pass, runs through a tunnel that is 2 MILES long and so dark it cannot be imagined, and scenic. Though I greatly enjoyed the race, there are a few things that made it a bit interesting. First, our shuttle driver got lost. We still made it to the start OK, but definitely anxiety producing! Second, I did not truly understand how difficult it would be to run in the tunnel. It is dark. I had a light as well as everyone I saw, but it was not bright enough. I expected the tunnel to be cooler than outside, but it was warmer and very humid. The trail was uneven through the tunnel so a little scary to run with little light, unsure footing and humidity. Third, it gets a little redundant. The scenery is the same, over and over and over. For 26 miles. And 4th, the flashlights again. There is a drop right after the tunnel to put your flashlight in so you don’t have to run with it forever. BUT, at the finish, there is no huge marked area with the flashlights. There is barely any finish area. A spot to take a picture, some merchandise to buy, some food. I took the shuttle back to my car and then realized I forgot my light! Drove back to the finish and had to ask where the lights were. There were 100s of them in a grassy area behind the merchandise. Not intuitive to look there are no sign indicating they were there. As I was one of the last folks there as the finish was being dismantled, all those lights were forgotten. Still, I would recommend this race. Just know that it isn’t perfect!

This is a great race to run if visiting Austin. You definitely get to see the town! And there is tons of crowd support. The expo to pick up your race packet is great with many diverse vendors. The finish line is also a fun place to be. Plenty of race parking on streets.

I do not do well in downhill races and have only participated in this race several times because 1. the race swag is AMAZING and 2. it is local. The race swag is out of this world. All 3M products. From post it notes, reflective tape, sand paper vacuum attachments, safety glasses, plus a spot on shirt and medal at finish. The race itself is a point to point. Plenty of start line parking. Then take a shuttle back to the start after the race. Shuttle is quick and not difficult. The race is entirely downhill, but the finish is on an uphill. Weird. My legs don’t like the transition! Fun race though!

This was such a fun, social, low stress race! I was thrilled with the race atmosphere, the crowd support and the joy from the locals. Unlike other marathons I have run, the folks that lived along the course route took advantage of their roads being closed. There was a block party around every corner! There was even a balloon arch over the course on one street, a big panda in a grass skirt and many offers of food and beverage along the way. So much fun! The course was not overly hilly, a nice mix to keep it interesting. The “Worlds Shortest Ultra” could have been marked a little better. At mile 25 at my pace, signs have to be big and flashing for me to see it. My family had fun finding me at different locations and had an easy time getting around. They were at 5-6 different spots!

This race is amazing. Just the scenery. Takes your breath away! I was suppose to do the marathon, but a stress fracture made me switch to the half… and I walked. Having done half the course, I was relieved I switched! This it the rocky New England coast. Beautiful, but steep and hilly. The people that work the race are so, so nice! It is like a family. Running over that bridge, back into Maine, seeing the light houses, the lupines in bloom, the fishing boats, tides, gulls, even whales in the distance. It should be a required race!

I was excited to add this race to my record as a marathon after having run the half several times. I picked the wrong year! It was the warmest start ever and humid! Being in February, I had been running in cooler weather for months so this really beat me up. Overall, not the best course. Lots of hills, though the course has been changed now. Nice medal and wonderful finish line!

This was a very small race. I believe less than 100 marathon runners. I enjoyed the race, but managed to get turned around on course. I enjoyed the finish in the Tyler Rose Garden and receiving a rose bush. Pleasant race!
