    While the Atlanta Marathon is not the hilliest race I have encountered it definitely took me by surprise as to how hilly it was for a race in a big city. I would not recommend trying to run the Atlanta Marathon for a personal best, HOWEVER I would definitely recommend running the marathon for a great, big-city road race experience. It was very well-organized, well-set up, easy to get to using the MARTA public transportation system, and full of very friendly volunteers and great course support throughout most of the race. My full details and in-depth review are in my race report link below.

    I consider myself warned! The hills are definitely a theme in both your review and blog post, Aaron... so I can't say you didn't warn me if/when I have a chance to run Atlanta next year. I know some of the Olympic Trials hopefuls have also commented on how hilly the course will be. Nice job staying strong and congrats on another sub-4 finish, sounds like another successful road trip for Team Running Riddles! 💪 LESS

    Need to pick up bib at expo prior to race (open for 3 days prior). Not much at expo. Course mostly asphalt (watch for wavy road and potholes), some cement, brick areas, track and grass. Mile markers and time clocks. Plenty of water/Powerade stops. Lots of portapots at beginning of course and some along the course. This year course changed so half and marathon particpants don’t split until mile 13. Course not as hilly as previously. Good refreshments afterward, including chocolate milk. Nice longsleeve shirt and medal that spins. Results posted fast. Towel at end of race. (See photo)

    This was inaugural marathon. 80 plus degrees and course ran out of water. Fortunately I had money and bought my own gatorade. Tough hilly course and too hot for March. MORE

    Nice race all through Atlanta. Plenty of hills. Lots of water/aid stations. Good cheer zones. More folks do the half marathon than the full marathon. MORE

    Good weather this year for the race. The course does have lots of potholes – most not marked. Plenty of water/Gatorade/portapot/etc stops. Each mile had a marker. Nice longsleeve technical shirt and good finisher medal. Sparse on cheering zones this year. Usual refreshments after race. Results posted afternoon of the race.
