Beautiful course, poor organization

I realize it was the first running of the race but they had very poor organization. We were freezing at the start for an hour! They promised propane heaters but we only had little wood fires that we had to rotate people around. The course was truly beautiful and I still think I would come back and race, but probably not for several years so the kinks can get worked out first.

Didn't meet expectations

Wow, my friend and I were so excited for this inaugural race and were very disappointed. The first part of the course was nice, but there were no cones to block the runners from traffic and no signs to inform drivers to be aware of runners. It was dangerous, we were constantly having to move onto the gravel on the side of the road to avoid being hit by angry drivers! There was absolutely no support of anyone patrolling the course during the race making sure racers were ok.

Sun full

Beautiful course with plenty of achievable challenges (hills) along the way. The only thing I would LOVE to see is a BIGGER medal. That's what I think a lot of runners like:) A BIG SUN or something similar would be great!!

Sun Marathon

Gorgeous scenery. Loved the course except the section along the main highway. Enough traffic that you needed to run to the left of the white line and the pavement there had lots of raised cracks. Small race was great. Great finish location. And the weather could not have been better for relaxing and watching others finish. One more portacan at start would have been helpful.
