    Overall, the race experience was great. They communicated so well about everything – expo, race day info, etc. The finishers medal and finishers jacket waste awesome! The only thing I would say could be improved is how the course is marked. There half marathon/marathon split wasn’t marked well. If it weren’t for volunteers, we would have missed it. I know of at least one person who ended up running the half because of the poor signage/markings. There were a few other areas that could have been marked a little better as well.

    I’ve only done 4 full marathons but several more half marathons and by far the BCS is my favorite. This is my 2nd year to run the full. The course is well laid out with some neighborhoods, rolling hills (mostly in the first half), and then a tour of the A&M campus. There are water stations at EVERY mile and aid stations are almost as frequent and fully stocked. The cheer stations are legit and it’s just a great atmosphere, start to finish. The opportunity to partner with such a great cause, Mercy Project, is the icing on the cake. When you round the last corner and see faces of children who have known agony far beyond what we are experiencing in running 26 miles, it’s a memorable moment.

    The BCS marathon really is an awesome marathon, especially considering how much smaller College Station is than other major Texas cities. The expo is awesome, you get two shirts, HUGE medals, and a special prize each year (foam rollers, socks, medal hangers, etc)
    The course is pretty flat with a few inclines and winds in and around College Station. The aid stations are super awesome with lots of amazing goodies to eat and drink to keep you going. There’s great crowd support, too. The ONLY problem I had was, being injured at the time and therefore slow, by the time I finished, half of the finish line vendors were gone and there wasn’t any food left and the only drinks were watered down margaritas. That was kind of a buzz-kill! I think race production made note of it though, so hopefully that didn’t happen again. They really care for their runners and their race’s reputation!
