review of 2015 Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon.   

4 / 5 Stars

Review

Loved everything about this race BUT the weather! Definitely not anyone's fault, but planning for a marathon in December even in the south can prove to be tough due to humidity and heat!

review of 2014 Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

This is a great-flat island marathon. The weather is usually perfect...and it was this year as well (Dec 2014). The expo is really small, but the pre-race meal was great. Southern food! Real Mac N Cheese!!

Race Tips

It is pretty easy to keep a solid pace. I was able to stay between 8:10-8:30 the entire run. The only con of the course is that there are many out and backs... so there are many turn arounds.

The course looks like a hand....with a lot of fingers!

But overall, after about 10 marathons, this is a favorite.

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

Stay on the island! During this time of year, the condos are reasonable. The Sanctury (the hotel) is always expensive. But the condos are spacious and worth the money. Also, the Start is an easy walk if you ask during booking of your condo.
