Hardest Road Marathon: Fact (about: 2010)|
Z. Z. from San Diego, CA (10/18/10)
11-50 previous marathons
| 1 Mount Lemmon Marathon
I had a great time running this marathon. The course was the highlight from the cactus at the start, through the scrub and rock pillars in the middle, to the pine trees at the top. Volunteers were super helpful and friendly and kept aid stations well stocked. The police did an awesome job keeping the course safe. There was obvious confusion with the transportation before and after the event that can be fixed after the first year. The finisher "medal" was disappointing - cheap.
How hard was this? My road marathon average is 4:20 and this took me 6 hours. Oh, that last blast at mile 24 was a killer.
