This was my 7th marathon and I was hoping for a PR as the elevation was a downhill the entire way. Unfortunately it didn’t feel like a downhill, it felt like a flat course. That was ok, but a little disappointing. I started with the first group and drove to the start instead of taking the optional train ride. This was a good decision because it got really hot by the end and starting early was better. The course winds down the mounting next to the river which was beautiful. The course is in packed gravel which was fine until near the end where it was a lot more sandy and harder to run on. There were plenty of water drops and gels offered but the bathrooms were very scarce. Only 3 bathroom opportunities after the start was not ideal. The medal and shirt were very nice. Jim Thorpe is a quaint town and very very busy, it was hard to park anywhere but walking around there were nice shops and restaurants.

Everything about this race went smoothly. The packet pickup was easy peasy, the swag was basic – a t shirt and mug or belt, and getting to the start from our hotel was simple. Nice small race with lots of water stops, including gels and granola bars. Volunteers were amazing and friendly. I got a PR because the course was flat. The only negative about the race was the wind. After mile 11 you get hit with a headwind for the next 10 miles. Would do this again for sure !

This was a beautiful race. The scenery, the race planning and the execution went way beyond my expectations. It was so easy to get to the start the morning of the race I stayed in a hotel about a five minute walk away. Everything was so close by from the shops to the packet pick up to the finish line. It was very very easy to navigate. The race itself started at 7 AM which was great like early starts, the weather was very nice cool and cloudy, perfect marathon conditions. The course was very flat. It ran across the boardwalk, onto some gravel areas in a forest type setting, but nothing dangerous at all to worry about on your footing. The water stations were very often and , the volunteers were amazing. The only downside that I can speak of is there wasn’t much swag the T-shirt was nice the metal was nice but that’s really all you got that wasn’t after potty but I don’t drink so I wasn’t really interested in the three free beers that you get; food was OK I’m a vegan, so there wasn’t much choice for me, but everyone else seem to be enjoying it. I would definitely do this race again it’s not too far from where I live and overall had a great experience.
