    Nice little race in a nice park. Cook park has winding trails through trees and along streams and creeks. The race was 6 loops including several out/backs. It was a little confusing at first due to lack of markings. Some of the chalk markings disappeared after a couple of loops but by then you knew which way to go. This is a very small event (35 or so in the full), and is part of the Quadzilla series. Definitely recommended if you like small, no frills events.

    This marathon was part of a series of 4 marathons in 4 days over the 4th of July holiday, known as the Firecracker Quadzilla. I chose to only do the Cook Park Marathon, as I had several other races around the same time. This marathon and half marathon started at 7 a.m. with the option of a 6 a.m. early start. I got there early, so went ahead and started a few minutes late after the early start group began. The course was mainly on a paved path, with about 50 yards of sawdust at the beginning. The first half was flat, but there were a few very short hills on the second half of the course. The start finish area was near the Tualatin River, and the 6-loop course went through woods, riparian areas, and a beautiful butterfly garden. There were some areas where you could forget that you were in a large metropolitan area. The race was chip timed, even though it was not certified. My Garmin watch showed that it may have been about a half a mile long, which was okay by me as long as it wasn’t short. The medals were rather underwhelming, but what can you expect for a $50 registration fee? We were also given a nicely designed technical shirt, which was a nice bonus. All in all, it was a great marathon bargain, and I hope to do it again some day to try to improve my time.
