Small Marathon that did everything right (about: 2012)|
K. C. from Chicago (6/25/12)
11-50 previous marathons
For an inaugural small marathon, the race organizers did a fantastic job! The race was everything as promised, plus more.
The course was mostly along Lake Michigan on a very nice bike path. In Two Rivers, you had a little of everything, which included streets, packed gravel path and a small section of path through some woods. I actually enjoyed the small 'variety' of the course. The only reason I didn't give the course 5 stars is because of small sections of the course with road construction and we had to run on the sidewalk. The race organizers made it very clear there was construction, so it wasn't a big deal for me.
I was surprised how many spectators were out cheering us on. I didn't expect that much support. A very pleasant surprise.
Organization was as good as it gets!! Top notch!
Post race was amazing. After getting my beer, I walk over to a table and I'm asked 'peanut butter cup or oreo cookie blizzard?'. You kidding me? Then, I was asked 'Cheeseburger or Brat?'. Wow, I love these small marathons!
