Review of Kick Off The Year Marathon & Half Marathon by Rob Peterson

Posted by: on December, 26 2011

This race gets an average grade from me…because that’s just how I feel about it. I think it comes down to the loops on the course. Having to run the same loop 3 times for a half marathon(and 6 if you did the full) just gets you dizzy! If I’m gonna put out the effort to run the 13.1 or 26.2 I prefer to have different scenery along the way. The only way I would do this again is if I had a bunch of friends join me. That way the loops would be great. You could always be looking out for your friends. The January 2nd race date is pretty cool. Get’s the year started off right!
