Miles Walser's thoughts:

Montreal is amazing!

The expo was easy to navigate. I got my bib and shirt (and easily adjusted to a different size shirt) quickly. I got to taste-test some fuel options that I hadn't heard of before.

The host hotel was right at the finish line, and only a block or two away from the start line, which made race morning super easy. I got to the start in plenty of time without needing to wake up outrageously early.

This year there was an unfortunate delay in start time. We were supposed to start at 7:15, and my corral didn't cross the start line until about 8:15. The delay was a bummer, but other than messing with my fueling strategy, honestly didn't impact the race much. The temps were still comfortable, and the crowds were fantastic.

The course was gorgeous! I loved getting to see a tour of Montreal, including the old city, Parc La Fontaine, and the 76 Olympic Stadium. There was one big hill and a few small inclines, but it was mostly a comfortable flat course.

All in all, I had an amazing day in Montreal. I'd recommend this race to anyone looking for an easy international experience on the run!
