    The directors know how to take care of their runners! Although it was a 1.05 mile loop that we did 25 times….. they were there to cheer us on at each and every single lap. Those laps meant we had a port-o-potty at each mile and a significant aid station! The aid station had everything from chips and cookies to gels and tailwind, water and sodas, and real food! Around 10 a.m. they brought out wraps and took our pizza orders! They even considered special diets including vegan and gluten free! For swag, we received a cooling towel, sticker, and mug – I wish we would have gotten a shirt though. I would have paid extra for it too. The medal is great, and I have no complaints there either. Parking was easy, and we could access our cars if we needed to without leaving the course. The goal of this marathon was the be the slowest, and I have to hand it to the winners. I cannot imagine being on my feet for that long, much of it in the rain!

    A race that celebrates middle of the pack to back runners, and rewards the last finisher. If you’re looking for a race that each runner encourages others look no further. The race director, volunteers were incredible. The food options and selections were greater than an ultra. Open course but had only cars the entire time I was on the course. This will be a yearly can’t miss event for me.

    For all of us who can’t qualify for Boston Marathon – this was such a fun time. A hard 25 loop course – definitely a mental challenge. BUT it was so well supported (thanks Adamy and Don) and the other runners were super friendly and positive.

    2Slow4Boston was created with slow runners in mind and the thought that it might be fun to host an event that would be exclusive to them. This race is about promoting the aspect of mental toughness that exists in our sport and celebrating the people who can persevere.

    This is a neat concept where the last participant is the winner. It has slow runners in mind. We put as much effort in training as the elite if not more.
    On this year I was the last participant to complete the race and also established a new course record. This is the only way I could ever win any race.
