Best pre and post marathon set up at the “Hang out” restaurant.
Beautiful course in the park. First half is an easy flat course. The second half is a little more challenging with many wood bridges and boardwaks over marshes. Layed back and small race atmosphere. Very nice organizers.

A few hills but not too bad (Total elevation gain less than 777ft over 26.2 miles)
The most moving part was the blue mile (tribute to fallen service members)
Course not that scenic overall but a few sections in the parks were nice
Well organized and aid stations well stocked and many over the course
San Antonio is a fun place to visit so nice destination marathon

First time running a Revel race. Very well organized. I was very impressed by all aspects of the race organization from communications, aid stations, scenery, signs to swags not to mention free pictures)

A great place for PR and BQ. That said note that the downhill does take a toll on you and that prepping for downhill and quad strengthening can help you do well and recover faster. I did have my personal best there (and BQ) but not by a significant time because of the last few miles where I felt the impact of the first 20 miles downhill – I would have benefited from training more for downhill than I did (including serious quads strengthening!)

Vegas was a also great destination for a fun weekend after the race
Hope to run this race again or another Revel race.

Nice small marathon. Very well run. Laid back atmosphere. Nice neighborhood and marshes scenery. Loved the towel as swag. Big hit. Great destination for getaway weekend with Savannah, Tybee Beach, Skidaway. Although very flat, runners should know there are lots of turns. Does not affect me but does affect some people.

well organized. flat and beautiful.
Open roads and path. Maybe too many turns on path towards the end.
Great support at aid stations and more choices on food at rest stop (had bananas, oranges)
