I really enjoyed this marathon. It is very small (68 runners) in the full so it gets pretty spreadout, but since it is out and back, you still get to see people. The run through all the fields of lettuce and cabbage was really nice, and we had a perfect day. The folks at the aid stations were very enthusiastic.
There is nothing at the packet pick-up but the packets. No vendors at all so I had to go into Yuma to get some gels. The mile markers were also way off which made it difficult to determine pacing.
I like the smaller matathons so I am willing to accept these issues as part of what you get, and I will take this kind of race over the a 'Rock and Roll' any day.
