Course Description

The relatively flat Museum of Aviation Marathon course is two loops inside Robbins Air Force Base. The course varies from sections along an airfield to horse pastures to residential streets. It is a small race with very little fan support once you leave the start/finish area at the museum.

The typically cool marathon day temperature and the flat course with few turns makes for a PR course.

2 / 5 Stars

Review

I liked the pre race area and ceremony. I did not enjoy the delayed start for the marathon. Also felt like there was not much support on the second loop for the marathon. There was no food at the marathon finish line.

Race Tips

I would not recommend the marathon. I wish I would have just run the half.
