- 3 miles/5K, 13.1/Half Marathon, 26.2 miles/Marathon
- Road Race
This was my first marathon so I’ll try my best to give the best details as I’m a back of packer,
The expo was held in the convention center, we stayed at the staybridge hotel and suites so it was about a .5 mile walk, it was fast they had everything lined up in numerical order and you received your shirt. I get the shirt is suppose to resemble the Indianapolis flag but honestly that was such a strange design.
Race day they had the convention center open again for runners to hang out in till they started.
The course was nice and flat, the app did track me a little ahead for a bit.
There’s not a lot of crowds between mile 18-21 which my friend had warned me before thankfully. They did have some trivia out at like 19. Also during mile 19 there’s a big down hill prepare yourself it hurts a bit.
There were plenty of water stations but a lot of them ran out of Gatorade by the time I passed or bananas.
Plenty of heats sheets and beanies when I finished! In all it was a great first marathon. Some things with the water stations could be better as a back of packer but over all happy
My friend and I had witnessed a wreck maybe more road guards in the busier streets! It was pretty scary to be right next to one.
