The race director did an incredible job with this small race coming out of COVID restrictions. It was organized and run very well.
The race had some wonderful scenery of the bay and some parkland.

Race was finally run after COVID delays and moved from the spring to the fall. Fall races are better for me, training wise. The course was mostly flat and scenic, starting and ending on the boardwalk and spending miles in parkland.
The volunteers were top notch.
The race swag was awesome! Large finisher medal, beer glass and running visor.

Super organized packet pickup. The Expo was awesome, and really enjoyed speaking with some of the Marines that were there and hearing about what had changed since I served.
Brooks needs to bring more merchandise to the expo so they don’t run out of so much. The after-race merch stand was also out of my size by the time I finished.
The race is absolutely awesome. Running through the capital and finishing at the Iwo Jima Monument was awe inspiring. The young lieutenant volunteers are very motivating. Semper Fi Devil Dogs.

This was my second running of the Chicago marathon. Even in the rain at the start, the crowd support along the course was fantastic.
The Expo is huge, as it needs to be for a large race, the Nike march is overpriced.

The good – great finisher medal, awesome race shirt, Blue-Grey team competition, including a portion of the battlefield on the race route.
The bad – very difficult, hilly course, almost no crowd support, although the cow support was good with ‘moos’ keeping me going.
The ugly – my race time.
I enjoy marathons that have a half option also, so my son will come and run a race with me.
The few spectators that were out there were wonderful.
The other runners were awesome, providing support to each other and running next to battlefield monuments really moved me knowing the history of the historic battle and that I was running and looking out over where they had fought so valiantly.

This was my very first marathon.
The start was cool as it had us running from the Monmouth Racetrack. The course was primarily flat as it made its way to the shore and the crowd support was awesome. After the half-marathon runner split off, it felt very lonely, especially running past the mansions of Deal where there was almost nobody out to cheer you on. Hitting Asbury Park and running on the boardwalk was great and the shore breezes were a welcome relief.
The long sleeve race shirt was nice and the race medal was a good size.
