Spectacular scenery and a cool summer marathon (about: 2002)|
A Runner from Greenville, South Carolina (9/16/02)
I have never enjoyed a marathon any more than my 29th at Mesa Falls. The small-town hospitality, good organization, convenient start, finish and lodging, good carboloading dinner for $5, beautiful course, and great post-race social in the park make this a worthy marathon for your race calendar. It was definitely worth the trip from South Carolina. The altitude (6200 feet at the start) and the hills keep it from being a p.r. course, but it is interesting and challenging. Dave Jacobsen did an excellent job organizing and conducting the race.
