an excellent race for Southeast Ohio runners (General Comments)|
A Runner from Ohio (12/11/00)
I would urge runners to run this race. There is a marathon and a half marathon race. The fields are small but there are many good runners. After the first mile the course turns onto a bike path that follows the Hocking River towards the town of Nelsonville. After 13 miles the course returns on the bike path and finishes in the football stadium on the Ohio University campus.
I give the spectators 5 stars because I don't believe lots of people watching the race is important. What is important is the fact that there were no cars on the course. It is entirely closed to traffic which made running this race the pleasure that it should be. I congratulate the people who organize this race.
