Not a bad little race ... (about: 2000)|
A Runner from southwestern Virginia (11/15/00)
Small, super-friendly marathon. All in all, a pleasurable jaunt through well-preserved battlefield park (which made the hair on this ol' Civil War buff's neck stand on end).
Course, while mostly flat, does have some rolling sections, but overall fairly moderate. Did drop the score one star due to a few sections of rough pavement.
Good organization, including race personnel and course workers, and nice amenities. Again, dropped the score one star because a few of the mile markers were inaccurately placed (c'mon, folks, this is an easy, but ESSENTIAL, one).
Spectators are few (which is just fine with me) but enthusiastic. Aid station workers, including numerous long-timers, are especially supportive. Five stars, since quality is far more important to me than quantity.
