    Hey, what budget conscious marathoner can pass up a marathon for $26.20? Seriously though, it was a good value for the money. Like another review I read, I had looked at the course and thought it was a good PR course. SO fueled by the anger and frustration of not making the cut for the 2019 Boston, I set out to PR and set an even lower qualifying time. With a temperature and humidity that was higher than my ideal running temp, I did not meet my goal. I did, however place second in my age division. It was a decent course and was plentiful with aid stations about every other mile. The people in the neighborhoods were friendly as was the staff of each of the stations. The race started on time and was marked out well enough to follow but they still had someone at each turn to keep us straight. All went smooth and the medals were unique.
    If you are looking for a race with fans lining the streets, this is not the one. Spectators were few and far between. But if you’re looking small, inexpensive and well organized race, this is the one.

    I really enjoyed this race. I went there with the intention of attempting a PR; it wasn’t there for me that day, but it was for the two people that I traveled with. It is a smaller race and I liked the community feel.

    Some positives about the race:
    *Same day bib pick up; we drove a couple hours and it was nice not to have to get a room, just pick up our bibs
    *the medals were great – they even lit up!
    *the shirts were nice
    *the race started on time, was well marked and had plenty of water/aid stations
    *Price was reasonable to sign up
    *Easy parking, getting to the start of the race, etc.

    There isn’t anything that I would change about it. It was a nice race.
