Smallish marathons. (Read 1110 times)


Dad of a real runner

    Johnstown, PA marathon goes the beginning of October.  This year there were 58 of us.  We finished in a stadium.  As I approached a volunteer with a hand held radio called in my race bib number.  As I entered the stadium I heard, very loudly "Now entering the stadium..." and my name.  Way Cool!!   

     

    Ya' can't get that with a big marathon unless you are in the top 3 or 4, maybe. 

     

    Spinx Run Fest in Greensville, SC is smallish (about 1,300) but does the same thing.  I was the 99th finisher and they announced me as I entered the stadium. Even got my name right.  It's run the end of October.

        I did the Wineglass Marathon in Corning, NY the past September.  a couple thousand runners in the marathon.  Great race, well organized (it was their 35th year), flat and pretty fast.  And, it is in the Fingerlake area, so lots of options for post race wine tasting.  I totally recommend it.
