Beautiful running experience (about: 2002)|
A Runner from Edgewood, New Mexico (11/5/02)
It was exciting to be apart of Durango's first official marathon. The course is stunningly beautiful with the aspens changing. The organizers and volunteers were excellent. I felt supported in every way, plenty of aid stations, cheering, etc. The course itself is not super fast, but it does have constant rolling hills from 16-23, not to mention the 6600 ft altitude. If you take a look at the results, you'll find the average finishing time is higher the many other marathons. All in all, I highly recommend to challenge yourself with the Durango Marathon. It was a well organized, challenging race.
