This marathon starts in the evening and is part of a twenty-four hour ultra. It is "around" a lake, but most of it is not "beside" the lake.

As a back of the pack marathon walker, I enjoyed doing the loops. It was nice to be around folks for a change, even if most were passing me! The number of miles the twenty-four hour folks put in was AMAZING!

Location was easy to get to - far enough out of Boston there weren't any traffic issues, and plenty of parking right at the start.

When I did this race in 2011 it was only my third marathon. But it is the marathon which got me hooked, and I have now completed 37 marathons/states.

Completely enjoyed this event!
