Beautiful, Challenging, Outstanding organization! (General Comments)|
A Runner from Oxford, MA (10/29/01)
I've run this in 1999 and 2001, and have found this to be THE race to run in New England. The course is basically flat through mile 15, then the real fun begins! Rolling hill for the last 10 miles of the race make for an incredible challenge. Bragging rights count...when someone asks you if you ran a Marathon, you can tell them you didn't just run ANY marathon: you ran CCM!!!
The volunteers are the best, the course is in beautiful Falmouth, MA on Cape Cod, and hills make this more than just a 'race', it's an event!!
I've heard they run another marathon somewhere in the Boston area...sounds like fun, but it doesn't compare to the challenge of CCM. (Heartbreak Hill? Don't make me laugh!)
