review of 2014 Walker North Country Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


This is a challenging course, especially for those new to trail running. Very small race so enjoy the solitude.

Race Tips

The finish is at the top of a long paved gradual hill. Train for it so you're not surprised when you come around the corner for that last 1/2 mile. Also, only one potty at the 1/2 way mark. Bring TP if you need to sneak off in the woods.

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

Small enough race that there's plenty of rooms/campsites available in town.
