Outstanding all around! (about: 2001)|
A Runner from New York (10/23/01)
Everything about this marathon indicates that tremendous thought has gone into the overall preparation for the race. In fact, without actually knowing, I would also safely assume that much of this came from input from actual runners. The time of year does not hurt this marathon whatsoever as the climate was ideal.
The ocean front course is breath-taking, with a few rolling hills, which only adds to the great attributes of the course.
Organization was great and, again, appeared as though actual runners were involved.
The spectators were extremely interested and excited as opposed to some other marathons where excitement seemed less genuine.
I highly recommend this marathon to all types of runners. There is so much to appreciate in Victoria as well as the people and surroundings. It's a great place to make a mini-vacation.
