    Endurance alone got me through this one. The course support cannot be faulted at all: the water stops are plentiful and well maintained, and the volunteers are amazing, but the crowd support is practically non-existent for this. Not as much scenery as I had hoped, but the surrounding area is certainly beautiful, as is the view from both of the bridges… if you can make it across them that is! Tough race because of the heat and humidity so make sure you are prepared to deal with that while you are running. The early start time is VERY well thought out, because starting any later at all would possibly have made this a DNF for me with the temps creeping up!

    This race is awesome! You run through Stuart and Sewall Point, which offers lots of views of amazing houses and coastal scenery, I only gave it a 3 for difficulty since you do have to go up and back across the causeway bridge which is a climb and it’s Florida so it’s humid. The course is very well marked and there are lots of water and Gatorade stops, also some locals were out with oranges, pickles etc. The finish line had a nice little event in the local park and the Boys Scouts served pancakes and sausage which was an awesome post-race snack!

    I’m from Ohio and had been running in snow with 20 degree temperatures throughout February. The race time temp was in the low 60’s with over 80% humidity, therefore, it felt very warm to me. I was not acclimated and struggled a bit. There was a decent wind as well, but the coarse changed directions, so I was not in the wind the entire time.
    Once again, this was a Covid race, so I was just grateful to get a live race. They had the usual Covid precautions in place which included a rolling start and masks until time to cross the start. The rolling start meant you had a roughly a 15 minute time frame to start. The full started at 6 and half at 6:15. The faster runners were encouraged to start closer to the 6:15 time. I ended up having a final trip to the port-a-john and missed the start. Therefore, I had to weave in and out of runners for the first mile. It was totally my fault though.
    The coarse included some slight up hills and down hills with the only big climb on the the bridge on and off the island. Unfortunately, that was the only time I remember seeing water. Although it was not an ocean front course, there were still some nice areas with palm-tree lined streets.
    There were plenty of potties at the start and a few throughout the course. There seemed to be plenty of aid stations offering bottled water, but I carried my own water and didn’t use any of the station. There were some spectators along the way, but not like a big city race, which was to be expected. I think the best part was probably the medal. It was one of the largest and nicest ones in my collection. It might have been worth it just for the cool hardware. After all, isn’t that why we do it? The shirt was nice as well and had names of the full marathoners on it (I believe). I signed up a little late anyway, so I didn’t have my name on my bib either.
    There were some refreshments at the finish and the volunteers were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, my gut can’t usually handle food right after a race. As long as you are not expecting an oceanfront view throughout the course, I think it is a worthwhile event. I almost said enjoyable, but racing doesn’t seem enjoyable at the time.

    Repeat runner for this event. The expo is quaint and the swag is great. There was a minor screw up the course but, it is the runner’s responsibility to know the course. The RD fixed the issue ASAP and offered a restart. The curse is beautiful and I will do this event again

    This is one of the Spring Marathons in FL where the snow birds are down and in Florida enjoying the ocean… while the weather can still be nice, it can also be like summer. This year, it was super warm… can’t remember exactly, but I just remember suffering through the heat in this race. If I had it to do over I would have just not run as my time was super long due to the heat and the mostly shadeless route. If it had 50 degrees that day it would have been a fun race.

    This is quite possibly the most scenic course of any marathon in the US. Lots of beautiful beaches and rivers, scenic downtown Stuart and downtown Jensen Beach, and some very nice neighborhoods with lots of bacon traps. I hope to get a chance to run this again some day. If only there weren’t so many hilly bridges.
