'One of the sites you'll see is the Capital Buildi (about: 2002)|
A Runner from Fort Lewis , Washington (5/20/02)
An online promotional about this marathon says the Capital Building is one of the Sites you will see during the marathon. In fact it should say 'the only site' you will see. The marathon is very, very rural, and with a field of 500 you need to be a self motivator. You only run in /near downtown Olympia at the very beginning and very end. The rest is through rural pasture land and a few sporadic residential neighborhoods. Intermitently rolling in places, but definitly a quick course if you are looking for time. The Long Sleeve Mock Finsihers Shirt, Beautiful Medal, and huge abundance of food was very welcome.
Only diluted energy drinks all race even at 20 miles and beyond-if you use gu or power gel, bananas etc, bring your own. Overall highly reccomend.
