review of 2013 SoJo Marathon.   

1 / 5 Stars


This race was the most disorganized, unprofessional, and inaccurately timed race I have ever participated in. I cannot believe Boston will actually accept results from this race.

Race Tips

Race started late, the times were not accurate (timing equipment was not turned on when race began), and the course was changed at the last minute and not marked.

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

Race turns, miles, and turn around were not marked. Wherever the lead runner went was the course.

Finish Time Equivalent

If you ran the SoJo Marathon in 4:29:00, what would your time in the Boston Marathon be?
