BCS Marathon-A great venue! (about: 2012)|

3 previous marathons
I would like to say that this marathon was very well organized and thought out! I like that the course split at the 4-mile mark. Water stations every mile and a half helped many runners in this years humid conditions. The course was fairly flat, but did have some small hills.
The crowd though sparse, was very encouraging, a testament to the hospitality of Bryan- College Station. Parking was easy, no traffic, and I did not have to worry about getting to the start line. No corrals needed as most people were conscious of their abilities. There was no pushing, shoving, or dodging people at all, even though almost 4000 runners started!
The post race refreshments were the best I have ever had! Austin, take notes! Michelob offered 3 different draft beers, a margarita and pina colada machine offered runners as much as they wanted, and after running a marathon, this is a nice treat! The BBQ sandwich was awesome. Everyone was so enthusiastic and nice. The only drawback were the conditions, start temp was 70 degrees and 100% humidity.
again, my hat is off to the team that offered this marathon! I will definitely be back next year!
