    What a wonderful event! And I think what's most impressive is that they do it all at a crazy inexpensive price ($65). The fact that it was a marathon ONLY event makes all the difference. It was so nice to have all of the emphasis on the marathon and not the half. The volunteers were exceptional. The course was just right with a few small hills, but nothing terrible. And the finish line spread was impressive with bbq by Beast Craft BBQ.
