review of 2012 Rehoboth Beach Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

Real nice small town race. Some nice views. Very flat course except for some moderate hills in Cape Henlopen Park (miles 13-17). Get to run about 6 miles on a hard packed cinder trail which saves the legs. Have a big post race set-up w/ Beer and burgers. Unfortunatly I can't eat heavy food after a race and there was no light food (banannas, bagels, pretzels, etc) to be found anywhere.

Race Tips

Once you leave Cape Henlopen Park its all flat to the end. No real fan support at all but its to be expected on a smaller race like this. Race has plentiful aid stops and has some gel stops too.

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

I found an inexpensive motel (EconoLodge) which was only 5 minutes from start. I arrived 45 minutes early and had no problems w/ parking or using the port-a-potties.
