This is a must race if you enjoy the race experience.
If you want to run over Bridges, through tunnels, into Canada this race is a must.
The Canada side is much more Rowdy than the American side.
I would say that the bridge is a bit rough because it's a bit of elevation gain the tunnel is interesting definitely must experience best part I think is the island that you run onto because it has some really amazing scenery
The Finish Line Festival is kind of average they have music they have vendors it's a big race so it's super crowded and if you're looking for that memorable end experience maybe not this race to the memorable piece is the scenery and the fact that you can say that you ran to Canada

You know....This isn't a bad race.
After much deliberation, I would consider doing this again.
The Expo:
It's about average. There were a few booths and vendors. Nothing to write home about, but not just get your bib and go.
Swag:
About average. I still use the mug they gave us.
The Course:
This is a one loop marathon, it's relatively flat. The few up hills aren't bad, it's just the time I ran was 110 degrees. And a few of the aid stations ran out of water.
This is about average for races. I feel it was a race that was probably a small town race that got big quickly. The spectators were friendly, there is a DJ at mile 16 or 17.
The first few miles the water is in view and the last few miles the water is in view because you're running through parks which was nice. The middle bit is around corn fields.
The Finish Festival
I feel it was a bit better than average. There was music and beer and refreshments. you finish on the water which is nice. To be honest, if I wasn't so destroyed at the end I would probably find the finish line enjoyable.

Pancake flat
Make your PR here.
Cool breezes
A lot of the course is shaded.
It's right off the water so you can hang out on the beach after the race.
About average aid stations but great volunteers.
I loved the boxed lunch they have at the end of the race!
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to pr or qualify for Boston.
the swag is really nice and thete is decent security for a smaller race.
Parking is pretty solid but greet there early because you need to shuttle to the start.

This was a neat race. It was early enough in the year to be cool enough to enjoy and not get dehydrated.
There was plenty of course support in case you needed something
The long (long) stretch between turns was both scenic and torturous because it never seemed to end; but the emerald green water was within sight the whole way.
This was mostly flat but the bridge felt like a mountain even though it was just an overpass
The finish festival was cute because it was in the main shopping area and wrapped through the shops.
I would do this race of they have it again.
