Tucson Marathon Reviews


4.7 Stars from 3 Runners





  

By about 2015


Review

Small, simple, scenic, downhill, fast, cool (temperature).


Race Tips

One of the steepest, most sustained downhills of any marathon in the world. Train on downhills at the end of long runs. During race day, run downhills (especially at the start) no faster than 20 seconds faster than goal MP.


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

If you can afford it, stay at main host hotel. Nice place, logistics are so much easier.

Review

Fun race, but the logistics were poor. There was confussion about where drop bags should be left at the start. I ended up losing my trainers and a long sleeve because my bag was not at the finish. The web site crashed the day of so I could call anyone to try and retrieve it after either. By the time the site was back up with the number to call the bags had gone to good will.


Race Tips

Don't use the drop bags. The course has a lot of downhill, train for it. Take the first 5 miles easy or you will pay for it at the end.

Review

Major net downhill, but up hill around mile 12 can be very difficult and discouraging.


Race Tips

Wear throw away warm layers. It is very cold at the start then can quickly warm up.


5 / 5 Stars
