Cape Cod Marathon Reviews

4.0 Stars from 1 Runners


By about 2012


A mid-sized race (1000 finishers). You can stay warm before the race in a high school gym but arrive early because the school does not have enough parking. Run through pretty Cape Cod towns w/ lots of ocean views and wooded scenery. Water stops are only every 3 miles. I brought a bottle so I could fill up esp during the later miles. Nice expo and volunteers. Cotton long sleeve shirt.

Race Tips

The early miles are flat but then you get a steady stream of rollers that can take a collective toll. Toughest hill is around mile 21. The roads are all open to traffic (even the crowded early miles) and there seemed to be plenty of annoyed drivers.

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

I stayed about 30 miles away in hyannis port. Arrive early to use the school parking otherwise you have to find local street parking.

4 / 5 Stars
