John 's thoughts:

This race starts in Acadia National Park and winds its way along the ocean for 26.2 gorgeous miles!

A difficult course, but well worth the effort.
The entire city comes out and helps with this race. Our waitress from dinner the night before the race was a course marshal. The bus boy was handing out medals at the finish. And the check out person at the grocery store was working at a water stop. And they ALL remembered me!!!

I got to the starting line about an hour before the race and parked on the street less than 100 yards from the actual starting line. I then used an indoor rest room, since all the businesses open early to support the runners!

Make a vacation out of this race!
