Ratings & Reviews for the Inland Trail Marathon

5 Stars from 2 Reviews

review of 2015 Inland Trail Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


Pros: Very flat course. Pre-race got to stay warm indoors before race. Parking is plentiful right at race start. 2015 was beautiful day and the course was gorgeous. Got my BQ there.

Cons: If you need large crowds, lots of racers, etc. for energy, this is not your race. Also, the start is not chip timed but there are not many runners so it's easy to get near front and only costs at most a couple seconds if seeking a PR.

Race Tips

Nice cool, maybe cold weather at start given it is in November. Easy packet pickup and close parking day of race.

5 / 5 Stars


Pros: Flat course for PR, Can stay warm indoors until race time, Parking right at event, pretty course

Cons: If you need lots of crowds or a big field to get motivated, this is not your race. Gun start rather than chip timed start, but not a large race so eacy to get up front if seeking PR or BQ so you don't loose more than a couple seconds.

Course and weather was beautiful in 2015.
