I loved this race so much. The views at Hilton Head are beautiful, lots of shade and greenery and a stunning view as you cross the bridge off and on the island.
They were quick to answer the few quesrion I had about race which I appreciated. Only wish is that they’d have more swag or tshirt for sale at expo. I loved the fleece vest but would still have bought a shirt.
The course was great and different, there was some Highway portions but also parks and a few paths that kept it interesting. And I loved the medal. I hope to do this again!

This was my first World Major Marathon and it lived up to the hype. The crowd support for this race was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. They kept me going so many times when I was hurting or slowing down. There were plenty of water/Gatorade stops and medic tents. As well as 2 biofreeze stations with people ready to spray you with bio freeze. I loved this. The medals were beautiful. The shirts were nice Nike shirts (though they ran small). The course was nice and flat. I def recommend this one atleast once in your lifetime. Already debating about doing it again next year.

"Niagara Falls 10k "

This race is great for a 10k. It is part of the Niagara Falls international marathon weekend. They also offer a half marathon and 5k distance.
The weather was just perfect, low 50’s with no wind and the leaves were almost at peak for fall colors.
The course is beautiful as you run along the water and end at the brink of the horseshoe falls. However I would imagine doing the half or marathon May get a bit boring running along the river.
We didn’t do expo just picked up bib and shirt morning of race which was super easy. It was chilly when we got there and parking was super convenient to sit in car and stay warm while waiting for race time.
The medals didn’t seem as nice as previous year from pictures so hopefully they’ll improve next year.

This was a virtual run for me so I ran it around my neighborhood which I love but I loved running for a good cause. I loved that across the planet refugees were coming together to run a 5k as well.
I am super excited to get my BOCO hat. It looks super pretty and I love wearing baseball hats especially in the summer.
Overall if you’re looking to do a virtual this is a great one and the swag is different which is a plus
