I am from Singapore and travelled half way around the world to run this
marathon this year.
I found it to be a good run with, what is to me, nice warm weather. Plus,
with music groups along the way and friendly volunteers giving runners
smiles and cheerful encouragement ... hey, I might even go back for RNR
Incidentally, I had to hitch a ride from my hotel in the El Cajon area to
the starting point and the kind driver also gave lifts to a runner from
Montreal and another from France! I met those runners again back at the
hotel after the run and they too confessed that they had a great time.
Go for it.....
