Plenty of parking near the start too. The first mile of the race is a loop on the actual race track which was awesome, and from there it’s out onto the streets of Dover.

The first 6 or so miles wind through town and then it’s out to open corn fields through small towns and farms for the next 20 miles but there’s spectators, aid stations, and open road galore! There’s a short out and back around the half way point which was actually a bit refreshing. The course is well marked for the half, the full, and I was never confused which way to go.

The volunteers were fantastic and the aid stations were plentiful. While it’s out of control of the RD, we couldn’t have had nicer weather than this year provided. I was able to PR and recommend this race to anyone looking for the same. Many thanks to the RD and volunteers who came out.
