    This was a typical Mainly Marathons run, except there was a little more variety of running surfaces. Like many of their races, the course consisted of a short out and back. This allows them to run longer races without having a large number of aid stations and a large number of volunteers. It works if you know a lot of the people, but can get boring at times. The course started out by going around 3 sides of a paved parking lot, then across a grassy area, then through a dirt trail, then a paved road that alternated with a couple of gravel sections. The park was nice and green with verdant trails, but with the 16.5 out and backs that I had to do for the 50K, it was a little monotonous. The humidity really sapped my strength, but the race organization can’t do much with the weather. There was a good crowd this year and the aid station food was good.
