    Nice, broad, mostly asphalt, mostly shaded, small rolling hills. Easy to find ( starts behind the YMCA). As always, the friendliest and most supportive staff, volunteers, and participants. Bling is amazing! I miss these guys already.

    I do series of marathons, and the more I do the slower I get. Well, almost. This was my 11 marathon of the series. We had one of those crisp cool days with a lite breeze to start. The early start of course… Maine was there to meet me with a fun day. Suddenly it was Saturday run day, I didn’t have much to prove after 10 days of marathons but a beautiful slightly hilly course unfolded in front of me. The first seven laps were done in 3 hours that’s good for a 72 year old. So I went into overdrive just seven to go. Up the wooded hilly trail to the asphalt rood and past the only spectators to the red turnaround cone. 7 last times. It looked close to finish in 6:30 so the last mile was full throttle. I t was going to be close breaking out of the trees into the parking lot a mad dash past several runners and ring the bell. 6:29:32 I still had 31 seconds to go. Well maybe next race I hit the exact time. Keep Moving my friends, Keep moving.

    Course was a 7 loop course of just under 1 mile from point to point. The course was completely on paved trail.
    As usual, the aid station support is fantastic, and there is always some hot food at the aid station in addition to various drinks and snacks.
    Race medal is in the shape of Maine, with nice details, and is part of the series chain of medals.
    Local YMCA also offered use of their showers after the race, all you needed was your own towel.
    Part of the appeal of Mainly Marathons is the people you run with, and become friends with after repeated days together on the course.
    So for a fun, yet challenging way to complete your states, sign up for a multi-day series!

    I was very happy and surprised with how well these races were ran. I ran all of the 8 day New England series. Be sure to plan things out and have everything ready before hand! The only thing I would recommend is to pack big spray! Most of the races are in parks or near forested areas.
