This is an easy course, and the weather was great but what a bore of a race. You start off at the beach and thats the last you see it. The first 10 miles are on some highway 74. Then you run about 3-4 miles through downtown. This section is nice. Then out to a lake for about another 8 miles. Very boring, then back downtown.
Not much for scenery, and very little crowd support.

This was a really great race. Lots of scenery, runners, and spectators. My favorite stretch was down around mile 9 by the river and the big rocks. This is must do for anybody needing VA in the 50 states marathon running club.
You do finish on a island, which is a little packed and hard to find people if you are looking for them so I suggest having a meet up plan for after the race.

It's a tough course, come prepared. Don't expect to PR. It's well organized and a scenic route. You will be lonely but for a race in August it's perfect. MORE
