    This race was a lovely course put on by a nice crew. I have run 40 marathons so far and I always look back on this one as one of my favorites because of the gorgeous scenery. The post race food was awesome, you can never go wrong with homemade pies! The aid stations and volunteers were great. It is a small race so when you come across the finish line it’s very special because everyone is whooping and hollering just for you!! The course on the road made it easy for my family to drive along and meet me at certain points for encouragement. They had a great and easy time soaking up the scenery too so it’s nice to know your cheer squad can have fun and not be bored. The location is a bit remote so you will need to drive or have a rental car, the remoteness is all part of this race’s charm though. I would definitely run this race again, they do a great job!
