Has anyone run either of these marathons?
They are both scheduled for December 9 this year.
(Although that's a Saturday. Maybe I have the
date wrong.) Any commentary would be greatly
Both marathons were listed in the top 10 list for fast marathons. I have
understood that both marathons are flat and fast. The Kiawah Island race does
not have as many spectators as the Rocket City race. I heard that the Rocket
City volunteers put out flyers to everyone living on the race course telling
them about the marathon and to come out at support the runners. I have heard
that the Kiawah Island race is really nice since its on a resort part of SC,
but not many spectators. One really good thing about Kiawah is that you can
opt on the day before the race to run either the 1/2 marathon or the full
marathon. So...if you have already qualified for Boston, you could run the
Kiawah with the 1/2 marathon option as a tuneup!!! Wishful thinking...
