Worth the trip! (about: 2001)|
A Runner from Western Michigan (7/15/02)
I ran this marathon in 2001 and LOVED it! The weather was a little cooler than I would have liked, but the course was beautiful and the organization was great. Buses took you to the starting line so you were able to talk to fellow racers on the way out to the start. (like Boston) The course was awesome with some challenging hills and breath-taking scenery. Aid on the course was good with water and gatorade every few miles. Massages at the finish line were excellent with very short lines. Crowds were not there, but friends and family can easily drive the course and see you every few miles. If you like smaller races and quiet, beautiful scenery, run this race. It is way better than Detroit in terms of scenery.
