Ratings & Reviews for the Elroy Apple Dumpling Day Marathon

5 Stars from 1 Reviews

review of 2014 Elroy Apple Dumpling Day Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


This is a scenic out and back route on an old railroad trail. It takes you through one long dark (but lit for the race) tunnel with long, gentle and gradual hills that you hardly even notice. The race is small and a bit solitary, but the volunteers at the water stops are SUPER supportive and friendly. Its a great course with plenty of shade....a great little race.
