    I really enjoyed the Capital City Marathon. It was well organized and well executed. I really enjoyed that I could stay at a hotel adjacent to the start/finish. The countryside was rural but had beautiful views. I enjoyed the finish festival, and we were fortunate to have splendid weather. I would do this race again.

    Wasn’t sure what to expect with this race as typically the more elaborate the website, the more well done the race is. The Capital City’s website is pretty plain and I get very few emails from them leading up to the event.

    Parking is a bit of a struggle as many roads are closed and being from out of town, had to rely on my gps. You have to pay the meters! Ended up parking in Capital Lake Park parking lot-easy .3 miles from the start line. Where the race starts was a bit questionable.

    Once going, this race as fantastic! It does have some hills and it seemed there was never a downhill on the backside of the uphill. The sites are beautiful and have never seen spectators like this before! Once you hit about mile 8, all the houses set up their own aid stations with water, orange slices, watermelon, and beer! Super supportive community which made this race a memorable one in my quest for 50 half marathons in 50 states.
