This is an extremely well organized marathon and all of the volunteers were wonderful. I was honestly expecting to see a little more of the lakefront (especially seeing it's coined as the "Lakefront" marathon), but the fast course more than made up for it :). Overall it was a great event and well worth the travel to attend.

Review: This is an extremely well organized marathon and all of the volunteers were wonderful.

Overall it was a great event and well worth the travel to attend.

Pros:
1) Awesome point-to-point, flat and fast course
2) Well organized.
3) Friendly and helpful volunteers
4) Lots of aid stations and toilets
5) Great alternative to the over-crowded and expensive Chicago marathon
Cons:
1) Not many fans (though that's expected from a smaller race)
2) Small expo
