review of 2013 Ann Arbor Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


The course was great. The course takes you through parts of downtown, along Geddes road, through parts of UM main campus and north campus, along the river in through Huron River Park, up Huron Parkway, through the Arb, around Michigan Stadium. The Briarwood mall section is a welcome long flat stretch at around Mile 21. Lots of logistical support, plenty of great volunteers. Loved having the pacers. Enjoyed the band playing for the runners in Huron River Park. Lunch at the finish line.
