    This was an ok race. They have several walking events ongoing so that if you are trying to run the 10K you had to dodge a lot of people. I probably won’t run this one again…

    Great race atmosphere! A lot of the race was on the bike/pedestrian paths. Volunteers at aid stations were aplenty and very nice. Loved coming around the corner and seeing the hot air balloons! The course wan’t really difficult if you are from the area but if you’re coming from low altitude that is where the difficulty lies. If you absolutely need the spectators participation there is a pretty decent stretch without spectators. (Local friends told me that was unusual, typically more spectators on that long stretch) Parking was not the best situation. We were still trying to get into the parking garage when the race started after sitting for more than an hour. However, I would definitely do it again!

    I really enjoyed the course for the Duke City Marathon this past Saturday. I traveled from Tennessee and it was my 27th state ! There were NO photographers on the course or finish of the marathon. I always choose a couple pictures to put into my Marathon 50 state memory book. What a bummer!
    The Expo is so far away from the convention Center! I stayed at the Doubletree at the start. As the city is not big and the airport close, I did not rent a car. There were no shuttles to the casino so I had to take a taxi.That was $40 each way!!!
    Also, there were water stops out if WATER on the way back on the marathon course! It was getting hot,
    Also, the shirts are HUGE!! Mine is a medium and is down to my knees. I can use it as a throw away, but loved the color and wish I could wear it.
    I placed in my age group. The award is basically the exact same medal with a different ribbon.
