Great Experience (about: 2000)|
A Runner from Omaha, NE (4/15/01)
I thought the KC Marathon was very well organized and well supported...One word of advice to make it better would be to have a Rib feed the night prior to the race rather than after the race, eating heavy food after running 26 miles wasn't too appealing, and I also think that would give out of town visiters who aren't familiar with KC a nice welcoming. The Crown Center hotel was very helpful and accomodating, and I would recommend that out of town guests request late check out in order to clean up before heading home, it costs no extra...The course was very good, it provided a variety of scenery from wooded parks, to river, and city areas. There were some semi-challenging hills but for the most part it was a level course, and the fan support along the route was nice as well. The only thing that I would recommend would be extend the course in a way so that marathon runners would not have to complete the same route 2 times.
