    Love this race director. He cares so much about every little detail of the race – before, during and after. And although the race course was changed due to covid-19, the cause did not get interrupted or side stepped. There were no excuses given only encouragement and expectations of what would come.

    Ran the Day 1 Half of this two day event. COVID protocols were in place…masks before race; staggered start (basically start anytime you want between 6:45 – 9:00); grab and go aid stations. Very flat and shaded course. Weather was perfect. Course was an out and back along the Laxawaxen River which I normally don’t care for but this one was ok. Nice view of the river almost the whole time. Lots of swag – everyone got a tech tee shirt, but there were extras (jackets, tees, quarter zips) for signing up early, doing races both days, BQ, etc. Open course but traffic was limited and there were traffic pacers going back and forth on the road to control speed. Very low lying land so don’t expect to get a great signal (GPS worked but couldn’t stream music). Parking was limited. Will do this race again.

    The 2021 race was located in Lackawaxen, PA. Due to COVID precautions the race allowed runners to start at any time which spread out the runners. Ina addition the race production was kept to a minimum to prevent large groups of runners from clustering. However, this was a great race and awesome medals, a technical shirt and running jacket if you sign up during early registration. The entire course is run on the road, out and back Half Marathon (two laps for the Marathon) that follows the Lackawaxen River. I highly recommend the Two Rivers race!

    This is a small event. They did an excellent job with communication before the race with emails. If you like the small race feel then you will love it. This was my 3rd marathon. I have done Iron Man races too. I did NYC and Philly prior. But if you want something simple and fun then go for this race. the Logistics were easy. The director is one cool dude. It is a declining elevation and the few uphills do change things up. While no marathon is easy I did PR this one. Why? Well I worked harder and I am a 6 months removed from my Iron Man. It hit 60-70 on the second 13.1 and it was harder. Overall if you are looking for a value and you just love to run and compete then go for it. Aid stations every 2 miles were helpful. I carried my own nutrition and fluids. But they did bring my custom drink to mile 14 so I could swap bottles. It was very nice of them to do this very athletes. 🙂
