This was my 22nd full marathon and I can absolutely say without a doubt it was the kindest and one of the friendliest marathons I’ve ever run! My friends and I can’t stop thinking about what a great day it was! We appreciate every detail that went into planning and preparing for this spectacular event! Congratulations on a “well run” marathon!!

Excellent course, despite the snow/road conditions today. Easy, close parking. Start/Finish are at the same spot. Tons of porta-pots. This was probably the best organized race I’ve ever attended. Already looking forward to next year.

Excellent organization, AMAZING volunteers, beautiful and challenging course, and tons of little touches like heated tents before the start, showers/pool/hot tub use, and chocolate milkshakes at the finish.
