    I love smaller races. The “expo” was just packet pickup which is fine with me. They gave out frames and shirts. Love my shirt by the way. Parking was easy for race day and a short walk to the start. Plenty of port-o-potties which is always a plus. Race started on time and you could feel the positive energy. I ran the 3:35 pacer for half the race and he was fantastic. A few miles of the course was on a road that had the top scraped off and that was uneven. Not the race peoples fault, but still needs to be noted. Parts of the course were pretty, while others were pretty mundane. Aide stations were frequent and EVERYONE was so friendly!!!! Medals and music at the finish were nice. I would highly suggest this race!

    It was crisp morning in the mid 30’s. There was a 1/2 mile walk from the parking near the finish line to the start line in a park downtown. The course had no major elevation gains but for the most part was continually rolling.
    The first half of the race led away from downtown and through some agricultural area. There were a few nice wooded areas and ponds, but otherwise this portion of the course was not very scenic. There was road work between miles 4-6 on these rural roads. There were rain grooves cut into the surface for most of this section which made this portion of the course rough with sketchy footing (the race organizers could not control this). Other than this work zone the road conditions were excellent.
    The scenery during the second half of the race was great. The course ran through the heart of the beautiful Salisbury University, estate homes on the water and finished in the charming downtown area.
    The volunteers and law enforcement officers were fantastic. Drink stations (water & Gatorade) were provided every couple of miles. Good and granola bars were also offered at some of the stations.
    There were drinks, snacks 7 pizza at the finish line. The race shirt was a dri-fit t-shirt.. The race also provided a nice commemorative phot frame and free download of race pictures. There was also a 13.1 sticker and magnet provided. The finisher medal feature a spider monkey climbing on some tropical plans which, as an out of state visitor, confused me. After a google search, I learned that the local zoo had acquired some of these monkeys recently.
    All in all, I think this was an enjoyable course and I would give it a try if you are ever in eastern Maryland.

    I was surprised to find a car driving on the marathon course. Since this occurred where there was no intersection, there were no police around. Then on another stretch of a country road, a car was driving the wrong way on the other side of the double yellow line. Two cars started driving down the aforementioned lane, so the driver driving the wrong way proceeds to drive in reverse! The runners were on the other side of the road. I have never witnessed this before in a race. Other than these safety issues, the race offered plenty of support on the route.
