    I ran this race 4 years ago as part of the Harvest 39.3 (3) half marathon series. Its difficult for me to distinguish among the 3 races as they were all so close together in timing. We were featured on an advertisement the following year which was flattering.

    Good marathon (this was my second), overall fairly flat, though there are a few hills in the first half (miles 8-10ish) and one towards the end (20ish). The course is a modified out-and-back; there’s a big loop in the first half that’s not repeated on the way back, and a small side out-and-back in the second half. The course is Boston-certified and ended up measuring about right on my watch, though the individual mile markers were often way out of line (a runner ahead of me actually moved the mile 15 marker from where it’d been put at something like 14.3 to where it needed to be…the mile 26 marker was something like 0.4-0.5 mi from the finish…basically, way too far off to just be the difference between my running watch GPS and reality!).

    I wish I’d brought water/electrolytes with me; despite being in November it warmed up a lot and while there were a good number of aid stations, I needed a bit more. The folks on the course were supportive, though I had to get my own water at one station (they had cups filled but didn’t hand them to you, NBD just not what I expected, especially when the station was set back off the course).

    I thoroughly enjoyed and still enjoy my finisher’s blanket and hoodie, they are great! This one is on my consideration list for this year.
