  • Due to road construction, portions of the course may be changed this year (more on that in an upcoming post this week), but it should still feature some rolling hills, and a big one here and there, for your enjoyment.
  • This course and distance was put together with all you spring marathoners in mind.  It's a great race to prep for Boston or any other spring/early summer marathon.
