Excellent marathon; not for beginners! (about: 2006)|
P. P. from Apex, NC (3/13/06)
6-10 previous marathons
From start to finish, a truly wonderful experience. Extremely well organized and managed. This is what every marathon should aspire to be like! First, there was a comfortable, casual atmosphere from the start to the finish, with a tremendous sense of camaraderie. Second, even though the aid stations were 3-4 miles apart (as publicized and as necessary given the course), the support was wonderful - plenty of water, Gatorade, and cheering fans. Third, the course was very challenging and very scenic. Finally, awards were presented to the finishers as we crossed the line. No waiting (and waiting, and waiting some more) for an awards ceremony. This was by no means my best time for a marathon; it was, however, the marathon I am most proud of running.
