Good small race but lacks support for marathoners (about: 2011)|

This a hilly loop course, with one lap being the half-marathon and two laps for the full. The majority of people (close to 1000) ran the half, and less then 50 people completed the full. Unfortunately, because of the small number of people running the full, there was little support at the finish for us. There was suppose to be tacos, post-race massage, etc but we experienced none of these. There was also no post-race electrolytes or even a unique finisher's medal. Along the course, there is water and electrolytes (every other water station) but during our second lap, volunteers had left the stations and some had almost no water left. While it was well organized (packet pick-up, bag drop), the lack of overall support, during the race and at the finish, was really disappointing, especially after having completed a really tough race.
