Austin Marathon Reviews


4.0 Stars from 8 Runners





  

By about 2017


Review

Too hot, too hilly, too humid. They did have pacers and they use nuun instead of gatorade which I liked, but the beginning factors was too much of a turn off for me to attempt this race again unless my team does.


Race Tips

Take all the hills slow. The ones around miles 11 and 12 are what shot my legs and made it impossible for me to complete in a decent time.

Review

Great atmosphere, bands every mile or so, great local support. Hard marathon, though, with a lot of climbing and not even one flat mile


Race Tips

Run conservatively. The first serious climb occurs in miles 0-3.5 and it is a serious one. Miles 10-19 are all uphill. Try to conserve energy for the last 5 miles, which are (mostly!) downhill

Review

I did the half marathon, which followed the same course for 11.5 miles. It's hilly and challenging but the crowds are amazing and it's a beautiful city.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Plenty of AirBnB choices

Review

The course is always going up or down. There didn't seem to be any flat stretches. Even the "flat" stretch from mile 14 to 20 is a gradual uphill. I wouldn't recommend it because of the hills and unpredictable weather (it was warm and humid this year, cold last year)

Review

Well organized, course hits all city highlights.


Race Tips

Stay slow on the first half with all those hills, or pay dearly later!
