Nice little marathon, despite the weather (about: 2004)|
D. C. from Olathe, Kansas (5/17/04)
11-50 previous marathons
| 1 Brookings Marathon
This is a very well organized course with some great volunteers. It was cold and wet (I actually ran in some sleet at one point) but there were still volunteers out on the course everywhere. The course was well marked, but with lots of turns. There is a nice combination of parks and neighborhoods. The 5th mile marker was well short (about .85 miles according to my GPS) and I did not like some of the short stretches on the grass, which was not smooth and was hard on my ankles, but those are the only 2 things I had a problem with (other than the weather). Again... best volunteers I have ever been associated with. Well done.
