    Overall Rating: Really good, with room to improve.

    Course Difficulty: constant rolling hills and all paved surfaces. Fairly challenging.

    Course Scenery: Off the charts. Outstanding!

    Race Production: You’ll have to decide: no shirt with race purchase, packet pickup was a breeze, lots of pre race info, tracking app that didn’t work for many people on the course, first announcement at the start line was that there would be no aid stations for the first 8 miles, aid stations didn’t really have any type of fuel, aid station volunteers were really good. Some really major issues, but also some gold stars.

    Race Swag: Nice medal, but again, no shirt with entry.

    My Performance: It was ok. About what I expected for the second day of a double.

    A really beautiful course with lots of support. There is room for improvement, but if I needed a check mark by Maine, I would definitely consider this one.

    I love this course and this race. I was on pace for a PR and at mile 8 my mind took over, and before I knew it I was way off! Sooo, I’ll be back at it next year because now I’m pissed! Lol! If you haven’t done this race I think you’ll really enjoy it. Great people, awesome scenery and a fairly easy course to run, even when your head takes over!

    This was a point to point course from Wells to Biddeford, Maine, providing a thorough tour of the working class village of Wells to the upper-class resort community of Kennebunkport Maine. There were a few priceless views of the coastline , as well as good examples of summer vacation mansions near Kennebunkport. If you are thinking of running a marathon in Maine, this one should be given serious consideration.

    Probably 9 or 10 miles of this course is right along the coastline. Beautiful scenery in all directions. Plenty of volunteer support. Finishes on the track at the University of New England. Free Shipyard beer and pizza post race. This is a great race with a great atmosphere. Course is flat, but there are enough rolling nubs to get your leg’s attention.
