This year some big city Marathons will cost you more than $150 to enter. You probably have to fork over another $200 to get a hotel room that is within 10 miles of the start at best. By setting your alarm clock to 2:00 AM you get a shot at … MORE

    Stephan does not an amazing job organizing this race.

    Course: Essentially an out and back through Pennypack Park. Mix of dirt and pavement. Hilly in the second and third quarters of the race and flat for the first and fourth.

    I was fortunate that it was not as hot as previous years. This is not a PR race.

    Swag: Nice pullover and medal with cuckoo clocks as awards for the top 3 in each age group

    Post-Race: Light snacks and water at the finish. Buses then take you back to a German beer garden for a free beer and brat with the option to purchase more. Traditional German music and dancing are performed for the runners.

    This beautiful race goes through a park, with the full marathon consisting of a double loop of the half marathon course. Even though the race is in the summer, you remain completely shaded for about 90% of the run, so the sun is no big deal. The rolling hills are the real challenge, and will definitely take a toll on the unprepared. Definitely not one I would recommend for a PB, but would definitely recommend for a gorgeous view of the scenery on a more “leisurely” run. Also, the sweatshirt they gave out was of amazing quality and the post-race festival had some nice goodies.
