A very scenic marathon for the first half (about: 2000)|
A Runner from New York, NY (6/11/01)
Wow! The first half or so of this marathon was extremely pleasant and beautiful, with incredible gold, red and brown leaves falling all around us on a comfortable trail by the water. Unfortunately, the second half of this race mostly trades in this scenery for asphalt and traffic and a dearth of shade. Crowds are sparce, but supportive. (Stay away from the sub-par Ramada Hotel; Crowne Plaza is a superior choice.) Overall, with the relatively small running crowds and the gentle downhill nature of the course, I would recommend this marathon.
