An enjoyable, but poorly organised, race. (about: 2011)|
P. B. from England (10/26/11)
4-5 previous marathons
Small marathon, less than 200 running the full distance, but merged in with a 4man corporate relay and a larger-field half-marathon. Rather chaotic organisation: venue of Expo, and start/finish appeared to change at last minute due to tram-works in Casablanca, but worse was 1) that all aid stations after 25km ran out of water, resulting in the runners having to scrounge from spectators and marshals, and 2) the marshals misdirecting runners such that a 2mile loop was missed out on the first half of the course. Route was hilly, and tough with a sunny day and no shade. Few spectators on the route, but those that were there were great with their support of all runners. Overall an enjoyable and interesting experience, but not one I would rush to repeat.
