Great First Year Marathon (about: 2000)|
Ski from O'Fallon, IL (10/16/00)
After a one year layoff, a 'new' St. Louis marathon was run in 2000. I never ran the 'old' race so can't compare, but this race went well for a first year event. It was very organized, incredibly well marked, and seemed to go off without a hitch (except for the rain!). My only complaint is I found the course to be a bit boring. I'd definitely recommend this marathon, but with a warning. Most people think of St. Louis as 'flat'. I'd describe this course as fairly hilly.
