Had an amazing experience at the Sleeping Bear Dunes Marathon. Production was great. Course is beautiful. Some hills that make it pretty difficult but the views help distract you from the difficulty. You get to finish right on the Lake Michigan beach. Medals were cool, and they gave you a nice hoodie as well. Volunteers on the course handing you water, Gatorade and gels. Bathrooms along the way as well. You get to run in the woods, through a campground, along side the dunes, and in the Neighborhood. Spectators can see runners in several spots as well. A very fun race! Highly recommend.

The only negative thing about the race was the long line there was to get in. We had to get out of the car and have someone in my family drive the car so we could run to the start line. So if you’re going to do this race I recommend getting there very early.

The course itself is not super difficult, but there is no shade anywhere. You run out in the country in the middle of flat cornfields for two 13 mile loops. No scenery, unless you like corn fields. Temperatures almost reached 90 degrees on my race day, and with no shade for 26 miles, it got to be pretty brutal. Everyone around me either had to quit, or start walking cause the heat was too much. My pace drastically slowed down the last few miles. By the end of the race I felt like I was in the desert.

The production was good. They had water/gatorade stops every mile or so and bathrooms along the way as well. They did run out of water towards the end of the race which was rough, but probably what you expect on a 90 degree day. Got a medal and a shirt. And if it was an overcast or colder day it might not of been bad, but with no shade and no scenery I don’t think I’d ever do a full marathon there again, with the risk of it being that hot with no shade.
