This is how marathons should be! (about: 2004)|

Just a wonderful place for a Sunday run. I have run large runs like NYC and a bunch of different size marathons and I am sure this ranks up there for many reasons.
First of all, the organization was excellent. I have no complaints and wonder how Mark Henry and his group can do what they did for the numbers involved.
The route was most scenic, the people along the course, while not plentiful were very attentive to us runners and did their best to lift your spirits. The water stations were precise, every 2km, and well stocked.
The accommodation in the county is mostly bed and breakfast and there is no way I would let you know where 9 of us stayed, we want it again for next year!
My guess is that word of this run will spread and next year it will be more populated, probably more like Wineglass, except in Canadian dollars (although that won't matter much the way our $ is going).
My only suggestion would be to get the little towns more in sync with the run so they are ready for the lunches the day before!
Great race, put it on your schedule!
