Rochester Marathon Reviews


2.5 Stars from 4 Runners





  Scenic Run along River

By about 2017


Review

First part of race heads down hill then back up to start second loop. Finish not at start and the tail end has a short but tough hill 2 just short of 2 miles from finish.


Race Tips

Get out in from early as course narrows onto trail.

2-3 miles in. Almost as fast to "powerwalk" last hill as it is to run. good stretch opportunity to make a strong finish.


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

Yellowjacket Racing runs a very good race!


4 / 5 Stars


  HILLS!

By about 2017


Review

This is a hilly course right up to a slight up hill finish. The temperature was middle 70's. I trained on hills for my long runs and I still had trouble maintaining my pace on the second loop. The downhill's toward the end was as painful as the uphills.


Race Tips

I would make this a training marathon for another fall marathon if you would like a BQ. After running this, you'll be ready for the marathon you would like to qualify on.

Review

Extremely hilly. If you want to qualify for Boston, avoid this race!


Race Tips

Save your energy in the early miles because the hills in the middle and end of the race will destroy you.

Review

The course was awful. Hills, hills, hills.


Race Tips

Expect a gigantic hill near the end. Everyone walked up it.
