Terrific marathon, I'll definitely be back (about: 2001)|
A Runner from New Haven, CT (10/29/01)
This was a fantastic marathon. My only complaint, a minor one, is that the course was advertised as very flat - indeed, the course map says the 'highest elevation is on Haigh Ave. at 15 ft.' Several of the hills seemed 10 times that, and certainly were far higher than 15 feet.
That said, none were intolerable, the organization of the race was impeccable and the spectators were there when they were needed. There were ample aid stations (both water and sports drink), the turny course was well-marked, and the fast runners seemed to have no problems blistering on the (mostly) flat course. The wind was a bear on the way home, but the course organizers couldn't have done much about that. Otherwise a perfect day on a terrific course. Thanks to everyone!!!!
