Rather Disappointing (about: 2013)|
D. R. from Dallas, TX (2/10/13)
50+ previous marathons
| 1 Mississippi River Marathon
I liked the prospects of running across two states and the Mississippi River. I liked getting to see a rural area of the country I normally would never visit. Race organization: they did a fairly decent job, save for the brown water that was served at the water stops. I did like the fires at the start to warm the runners. But what I disliked the most was the course... Essentially you run 21 miles down a single road with no cover from the sun. And this year there was a 10-15 mile headwind. The last 5 miles through the town was the only enjoyable part of the course.
