Scenic Route, Great Crowds, Organized! (about: 2010)|
W. S. from Butte, Montana USA (4/22/10)
4-5 previous marathons
| 1 Marathon Deutsch Weinstrasse
I was extremely impressed by how the event was organized, and by how many details were covered. No wonder that it's only offered every other year! Check in was easy. I also appreciated that there was a covered place to check in valuables, as well as a place to shower after the race. The course was beautiful and challenging (there are a handful of lengthy hills), and the crowds were extremely supportive. The aid stands provided a variety of waters, apple juice, hot tea, chopped bananas and apples. I brought my own gels, so I failed to look at what was served. My only complaint about the entire race would be that I wish that the half-marathon wouldn't have been started at the same time as the marathon.
Great performance T-shirt and the entry fee included a complementary sports bag, which contained a bottle of the local Riesling.
I plan to do this race again in the future.
