Bayshore Marathon Reviews


4.8 Stars from 6 Runners

Review

Everything about the race was good. Not too hot, not too cold, and this is coming from someone who struggles with overheating issues. One thing that would be nice would be actual pacers, its gotten big enough that the event coordinators should consider getting some.


Race Tips

They have orange and Gu stations along the trail, but only towards the middle/end.


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

Book hotels early, I ended up having to stay in Cadillac an hour away.

Review

I liked how the home owners contributed to the event. They made the experience great. I did not enjoy the curve of the road as my ankles did hurt after a while. I will run this again!


Race Tips

It is almost impossible for family/friends to come cheer you on as the road is blocked off to traffic, and that is why the home owners are a vital role in the motivation of runners. I was impressed. I would have family and friends see you off and welcome you back to the finish.

Review

2016 was wicked hot but that didn't matter- this is an absolutely beautiful course that always draws an awesome group of runners and awesome spectators. You will definitely have spectators offering out candy and beer if you're there to have fun but there's awesome aid stations and a view almost the entire course that can't be beat. The elevation profile is a little deceiving, there are a few "rolling" hills which aren't terrible as long as you know it's not a pancake flat course. I love this marathon!!


Race Tips

My only complaint about this marathon is that there are no pacers.


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

I've stayed at Park Place and the Westbay Beach. Westbay has a shuttle to the start and Park Place is a very easy walk to a shuttle.

Review

Awesome scenery, good crowd, nice medal and post race treats.


Race Tips

Out and back course. It warms up quickly this time of year. First couple hours not much sun.


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

Book a hotel or Airbnb early!

Review

Limited size (2500) marathon with beautiful water views along Grand Traverse Bay, great local support. Finish is on a high school track at the base of the Mission Peninsula, which runs between the two arms of Grand Traverse Bay. Pre-race Pasta dinner is a bit basic - but good. If you like fine dining, Poppycock and Cafe Amical, among others, set a good table.


Race Tips

Even though it\'s a mostly flat course, starting a little slower than you think necessary pays off. Bring warm post-race clothes, so you can enjoy the local Moomer's ice cream without getting hypothermic.


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

TC is a resort town, and there is a wide range of accommodations, but the places near the Mission Peninsula tend to fill up if the weather is warm. Check to see if your hotel is on the shuttle route to the start.

Well coordinated with great and frequent aid stations. Very flat. Beautifully scenic. Awesome medal and food/drink at the finish line.
