Good small race (about: 2004)|
D. G. from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (5/27/04)
2 previous marathons
Since there are not too many other comments, I thought I'd put mine in even though I only ran the HALF. The race was well organized, with a good number of volunteers and good water/Gatorade stops. The course is a beautiful flat trail but it is an out-and-back which you have to do twice. (I only did the half: one loop). The half marathon starts 2:30 hours after the full, so if you are a slower runner, things can get very crowded when the half-marathon starts. I don't think this particular course could accommodate to many more participants in this format. Because it is on a trail, there were not a lot of spectators, but one benefit of the out-and-back, two-loop course is that the faster runners coming back are cheered by the slower ones going out. I would check out the course next year and run it if they had a single-loop course. Otherwise, will stick with the half.
