This weekend is the Marshall University Marathon in Huntington, WV. The best part? We get to finish the race on the football field for the last 100 yards carrying a football. How cool? If you're a
I won't do a full race RUNdown, but I'll give ya a little snynopsis. This is a pretty low cost race ($60 early) that has a lot of details centered around memorializing the Marshall University football team's plane crash in 1970. This includes flowers at mile 25 that you can carry for about a mile. The race claims to be a flat and fast course as well as spectator friendly. I'm wondering if the campus is still in session now and if they come out to spectate!?
The downside... besides the cold? No headphones allowed. Pssh like that's going to happen. If I get my first DNF it's because I've been DQ'd for headphones cause I'm NOT running naked.
I DO like one of their facts a LOT. They only charge military personnell like $20 or so. And this is in the fact board...
How can you offer such low prices to military personnel?
How can they make such sacrifices for our country and earn so little doing this?
Touche, Mr. Race Director, Touche!
