Review

Pros: Flat/downhill course. Cool, dry weather. Beautiful scenery.

Cons: You have to run on the shoulder of a highway the whole way which is a sort of 'spiky-like' unworn asphalt.


Race Tips

Mile 22 has a slight uphill climb, be ready for that. The last two miles is the steepest down hill part, get ready to fly here! I ran my fastest pace the last two miles.


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

It's a small town, so reserve your room early. I stayed in Alpine, a town about 30 miles away but it placed me an hour from the starting line. If I do it again, I might try to stay in Fort Stockton or Marathon. But I like to hang out, grab a beer, etc, the night before a race so I like to be in s bigger town for that reason.


5 / 5 Stars

Review

Aside from Boston, this is my favorite Marathon. Small field, scenic landscape, lots of returning runners year after year so that you see the same guys (and ladies) each year. I've run it 4x, with a PR on the course of 2:58:05


Race Tips

run easy the first 2 miles (uphill), don't get carried away the next 6 (downhill), and save a little for the hills at mile 21-22. Hope for a tailwind and not a headwind (its point to point) and be ready for a sunny day.


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

reserve your room early if you intend to stay at the Gage Hotel in Marathon. Camping at the Marathon RV Park is convenient and probably the most economical choice. There are a few houses for overnight rentals in town
