Very nice way to click CT off your state list.
Pros: fast course
Very well supported with Police at every major intersection.
Ample (almost too many) aid stations with Nuun and Water
Very organized from registration, packet pickup, and post party.
Cons: just a few….I normally run in the 3:30s. My friend in the 3:20s and we were forced to start with the 10 minute mile group because they had our starting stage area roped off unless you had a ‘B’ on your bib? Kinda frustrating and unnecessarily crowded at start because of this.
Felt the finishing food was a little lacking. Loved the Hot Rice cups and Sam Adams stand though! Overall a very nice experience and a good way to click CT off your state list!

Simply Gorgeous course. Running through the Washington Pines, through a 2.5 mile tunnel, over bridges with views of gorges and waterfalls and rock faces. I almost stumbled twice admiring the scenery. 2000 foot slow descent on dirt packed/stone road leads to very fast times without Quad soreness normally associated with large descent type courses.

Providence is a cool city to visit for the weekend. Start/Finish is in the heart of the city, near the beautiful Capital building. I did a Airbnb in town cause I hate paying $200/night at the Host Hotels. Ample parking near the start. Reasonably fast course. One nice long climb from mile 5.5 to 6, and a shorter steeper climb around mile 23, but the rest is very manageable. Scenic running along the Providence River and Bay. Packet pickup is easy, not much of an expo, which certainly doesn’t bother me. Very impressed with the local crowd support in the RAIN. Ample water stops and friendly volunteers. Local Police/fire police/crossing guards well established at all important intersections.

Lafayette is a town that knows how to enjoy life. It is alive with music, art and food festivals. The 2019 Marathon was kinda small…161 finishers, but this lead to very easy packet pickup and Start/Finish line logistics. Course itself is flat. Kinda non descript. It runs through town, then suburban areas with some really nice homes. Water stops every 1.5 miles, which is smart for swampy weather of 75 degrees and 70% humidity.

Largest Marathon in the world. Largest and best expo in the world. 120 countries participate giving an Olympics feel of international unity. 2.5 million screaming spectators. 300 bands. I know it’s not for everybody, but it is truly an amazing event to participate in. So cool to run through all 5 boroughs and finish in Central Park. Water stops every mile lead to lots of congestion with 52000 runners.

It’s very obvious this Marathon means a lot to the folks of Keene NH and the Keene NH Rotary Club, who put on the race. From the pasta meal (we had Amby Burfoot as guest speaker in 2018) to the course logistics, everything was well thought out. The first 16 miles or so are run in the NH Autumn woods, running beside a babbling stream. The last 10 are kinda standard fare, but the folks of Keene really come out and support the runners. Very organized water stations and positive people along the way. This can be a fast course, but has its share of climbs as well. (Especially the steep short hills in the Cemetary just before mile 23). The local hotels are kinda pricey, so we stayed at an air-bnb right outside of town. Only negative to me was that the 1/2 marathoners course kept joining and leaving the ‘full’ course so I was forced to pass the same groups of people 4 or 5 times. Found this mentally challenging as you’re trying your damndest to keep pace the last 5 miles and you keep passing the same 1/2 marathon walkers and joggers spread 3 wide. Overall, I’m so glad I did Demar for my NH marathon! Great opportunity to learn about this amazing Man. (Google Clarence DeMar)

My 20th Marathon and absolutely the flattest I’ve ever run! Because of this, recommend training on long flat stretches if possible. I did BQ, along with over 30% of other runners. Because it’s the last weekend to BQ prior to Boston registration, there are a bunch of BQ hopefuls to run with, which I found helpful. You can tell this race is put on by a running club. Easy packet pickup, aid stations stocked with the right stuff and great volunteers. Very good swag. Pretty course, but only gave 3 shoes for ‘course scenery’ because the view of Lake Erie is covered by trees for most of the course. Only negative is that this area can get humid around the Lake, so keep an eye on this and maybe relax a little in the first half.

Pros: Definitely one to have on your bucket list. Surprised at the number of amputees running. Emotional. Inpirational. Very nice course
Cons: Just the logistics of getting in and out of DC. Prepared to wait and be frustrated.
