Never the same race twice... (General Comments)|
A Runner from Central Pennsylvania (5/10/00)
I have run this marathon eleven (11) times and have never run the exact same course twice. (True statement) It changes every year. The first few times the turn around at the college would be different (usually further away). Then, they moved the finish line to City Island. Then, they lost the Walnut Street Bridge. Then, they cut out Wildwood Park. Then, they moved the starting line to behind the Capital. And so on...
Otherwise, they try to do a good job of organization.
Not the fastest course around (due to numerous turns, the usual winds along the riverfront, and rolling hills in Wildwood Park from 17 to 19 miles), but not too difficult.
