Georgia Marathon Reviews


4.7 Stars from 3 Runners





  Tough hills but great support

By about 2016


Review

Great tour of Atlanta.


Race Tips

Tough hills but great support in good weather.


5 / 5 Stars


  Hills. Hills. Hills

By about 2013


Review

Whew! Hills. Hills. Hills. If you like them, this course has them. They aren't really big, but there is no flat section of the course. You are always up or down.


Race Tips

Save your energy for the last part of the race. If you go out too hard, the constant hills just seem to get bigger and bigger at the end.


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

We stayed right downtown close to the start/finish line at Centennial Park. Very easy to get to the start.


5 / 5 Stars


  Hilly and challenging

By about 2011


Review

A very well run marathon. US Sports & Entertainment Group (13.1 group) took it over recently. There really aren't a lot of marathoners, but there are A LOT of half marathoners-10,000, i think.


Race Tips

I love this race course. It is challenging in spots because of the hills, but really showcases some of the Atlanta area. Save yourself for the second half. It is a lot harder than the first half.


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

Start/Finish are in Centennial Olympic Park. There is parking around the event, but if you don't know the area well, I'd recommend taking MARTA in. The past couple of years MARTA has changed their hours to accommodate the the early race start. Plenty of hotels surrounding the park as well for out-of-towners.


4 / 5 Stars
