This is a well organized small-town marathon. With a limited number of participants, likely due to the time of year, there is not a long wait in the cold at the starting line. Instead, registration is held in the local community center, and participants walk en masse to the starting line. Most of the course snakes through a forested hilly walking area, past some historic areas, carpetted with leaves. The drinks at the aid stations include water, Iso (like Gatorade), and tea, and food includes fruit, cookies, and cereal bars. For a small race, the finisher's medallion is very nice, and the entry fee is very small.
