Nice ocean view for most of the way (about: 2013)|
L. D. from Washington (11/18/13)
4-5 previous marathons
| 1 Surfers Point Marathon
This was a nice, mostly flat, marathon. The event was well organized and plenty of aid stations. The scenery was beautiful most of the way. I will come back for this marathon next year.
One draw back for me, as a back of the pack runner, was that the course support was discontinued while I was still running causing me to have to stop at traffic intersections at about mile 24 and mile 25. The last thing that I want to do at that point of the race is stop. The timing mat was also picked up well before the 7 hour cut off so the back of the pack finishers didn't get a chipped time and their results did not appear on the online results. This marathon was advertised as a 'weekend warrior' friendly event so everyone should have had support the entire race.
That being said, I had an enjoyable time and look forward to the 2nd annual running.
