review of 2013 Seven Bridges Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


It was a nice marathon. The hills are not bad. The stations were ok. One thing though They need to mark better the course, since there are no to many runners for the full marathon, some areas were a little bit confused to follow the route. I'll do it again.
