Well organized, tough, beautiful fall marathon! (General Comments)|
Don Yeaton from Epsom, NH (5/2/00)
I've run this marathon 3 times. Since the first year they held this (1997), I have been impressed with the organization. They have thought of everything. Starts and ends in the small town of Schroon Lake, NY and the course makes a complete circle around 9-mile long Schroon Lake. One neat feature about this race is that they will bus spectators to the half-way point and get you back to the finish line to see the winners. The first half has lots of ups and downs on the back side of the lake. The second half is more flat, but with some long gradual hills. Not good for a Boston qualifier, but beautiful scenery and great volunteers.
