review of 2014 Tomoka Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


I just went through the course today, 2/22/14, just to take a look at it and I think it is a great route for a marathon.

Race Tips

Besides the bridge on the Granada Boulevard that runners will encounter at the beginning, the course is flat and there will be many shaded areas all over.

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

I live around the area and there is parking mostly on the streets. There is a closed building next to SunTrust bank, two blocks from starting/finish line, that you should be able to use. The beach is four blocks away and the city should open it early for parking.

Finish Time Equivalent

If you ran the Tomoka Marathon in 2:52:00, what would your time in the Boston Marathon be?
