3 previous marathons
| 1 Kosice Peace Marathon
The marathon has a long history in this town and the residents provide a great deal of support. I especially liked that people had booklets with participants' names and numbers. There were quite a few people who called out my name along the course, which is always welcomed encouragement. At one part of the course there was a pub, and they had pulled tables just along the course. What a great crowd. I was tempted to accept one of the outstretched beers as I went by. If you have the opportunity to run this marathon, don't miss out. Great organization, relatively flat course, and enthusiastic crowds. The people of Kosice are great. If I can work it to my schedule, I'd definitely run it again.
