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.

review of 2017 Museum of Aviation Marathon.   

2 / 5 Stars

Review

The location was quite impressive, first time running on an active military base and the was quite motivational. I knew going into the race that there was not going to be many spectators, so that wasn't a problem. However, wasn't impressed with the delayed start, and also it appeared that some of the water stations where taken down on the second loop, and it once instance one was moved to a 1/2 mile interval. This made it hard to control hydration.

After the race asked the medical tent for ice, and all they were able to provide was a medical glove with a little ice tied up in it, Thought that was a little odd.

Unfortunately, I will not attend this race in the future,

Overall impressed with the location, and medals, but disappointed in the organizers.

Race Tips

The course is relatively flat with some hills throw in, nothing really too troublesome. Would recommend sunscreen on sunny days as this was, since there was little shade. Also, I would suggest carrying your own hydration and fuel rather than relying on organizers, at best the water stations were 2 miles apart (which they were there), water and Gatorade, one table with oranges and bananas .

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

Stayed in a local hotel, staff were friendly and allowed for late checkout, allowing time to go back and shower before the trip back home. Also, plenty of restaurants in the area for eating after the race.

Friendly people and meet up in the hangar with an SR-71.

Race Tips

It is all up to you. No pacers so start slow and keep your pace. It is relatively flat until you are tired and then you notice rolling hills. Hardly any shade and even Jan. can get hot. Hydrate!

review of 2014 Museum of Aviation Marathon.   

3 / 5 Stars

Review

Well run with a warm reception in the museum and nice medal.

Race Tips

Should be cool and you can have some wind as certain areas open. There are no pacers and sparse support so try and either be very disciplined or find someone at your pace to pace with if they are OK with that. You really have to stay concentrated on form in the later stages as you tire. Stay true to your pace and don't go out to fast.

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

From N. Atlanta it is about 2 1/2 hour drive so either get up super early or drive down the night before and get a hotel.
