review of 2013 Bozeman Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


Nice race in a beautiful environment. Late in the summer here so it is much cooler. Getting close to crunch day for those of us still looking for our Boston qual time. Good luck see ya there!

Race Tips

Very cool at the start line if it is windy at all. Seems like a pretty flat course other than the slight incline between miles 7 and 13. Pretty much down hill if I remember right after the Half Marathon point. I have run this on twice it is definitely a keeper!

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

Nice folk in Bozeman. Lots of places the stay and eat. The folks at Bozeman Running Company can give you the local scoop, and specifics for race day.
