    I have wanted to do this race for awhile since I am in Lexington often to see my daughter at W&L. Once you register, book your lodging ASAP because it is very limited. Packet pickup was easy and race day logistics were minimal. The trail was somewhat muddy from heavy rains the night before. Race conditions were pretty close to perfect, though, despite the mud. Cool start at about 46 degrees and overcast. By the end of the race it was sunny and high 50s so really awesome weather. Most of the runners are local or from Virginia but I thought it was worth traveling to do it. The course runs along the Maury river and through pastures so it is very scenic. I hit mile 13 and didn’t even realize I was almost finished. The marathon is the same loop twice, which really wouldn’t have been that bad. Technical long sleeved shirts in unisex sizes were ok. Would have liked women’s sizes. But really no complaints for a local race. I would do it again if I was going to be in the area.
