Very friendly and well organized winter marathon (about: 2002)|
A Runner from St Lucia (2/27/02)
I particularly enjoyed this marathon as it was small, friendly and very well organised.
The course consisted of four loops within the University Campus with convenient markers every 5 miles. Plenty of fluids en-route and friendly support crew. Great post race facilities, hot soup, drinks, fruit, certificates and piping hot showers. The weather was extremely kind with a crisp and sunny February morning, what more could you ask for!
If I am in transit between St Lucia and UK the same time next year I will certainly make the effort to drive up the interstate to Albany to take part.
I was also particularly pleased with my personal best time, so of course it's my favourite marathon (so far) although the crowds are much bigger in the London Marathon!
Congratulations Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club, keep up the good work!
