review of 2015 Paradise Coast Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


The medal and shirt are one of the best I have seen anywhere. The course was beautiful through a resort community. There was all kinds of support on the course. A wide variety of snacks after the race. We also go a free beer. It was one of the best organized races I have ever been to.

review of 2014 Paradise Coast Marathon.   

1 / 5 Stars


I thought this race was poorly organized with minimal support. A friend of mine running the full finished in 5 hours and there was no food or drink available. Additionally her first place age group medal was for the previous year.

Race Tips

Lots of concrete and no shade. Not enough direction on the course. I was happy to be running it as a lark.
