The pre-race information was very clear – time to complete, how to register, expo, etc. The course was not that hard compared to others. GPS reception was probably the most frustrating, but not a game changer. This was my 5th marathon and the crows support was the BEST I have experienced. In some areas I thought the music was too loud, but in other areas the cheers and bells and signs along the route made it a very enjoyable experience. The corral timing and start went smoothly and there were ample finish line photographers to take photos of you. The post race swag/snacks were also handled efficiently. The volunteers everywhere were very helpful and positive. I had a fun time. The downside was the traffic to get spectators around – it’s a nuthouse around there and I’m glad I had a local to get my family where they wanted to be on the route.

The organization of this event was wonderful. There were no surprises. The pre-race communication was spot-on and very helpful. Replies to emailed questions came quickly. The packed gravel road, though not a surprise, was more difficult that I expected, especially with 20mph winds in the face. The winding trail through the parks helped the mind wander away from running. Volunteers were happy and cheerful. All-in-all, this was a good event. I might recommend packed gravel road training if you haven’t had experience with that.
