The VCU Richmond Marathon earns it's title as Bibrave 100's Friendliest Marathon. This race is well management and very well-supported. You will have spectators everywhere cheering you on, most of them even taking the time to read your bib so that they can cheer you on by name. The race has several "Party Zones", where the energy level is through the roof. From the blasting music, to the spectators lined up handing out hi-fives, it really gives a runner an extra boost in the latter miles of the marathon. I won't deceive you, there are some challenging hills and 2 bridges you have to run across that seem never-ending but nothing you can't handle. I ran myself to a 16 minute marathon PR. When you cross the finish, not only do you get a medal but you also get a blanket and a finisher's hat.
