I had the honor of not only speaking at this race, but of running it the next day. From the pre-race parties to the organization and ease of registration and beyond - this race is by far the BEST managed marathon I've participated in.
The registration process was easy. The communication from the race director and crew was top notch - not over the top, but just enough so that there was no stone left unturned.
On race day - the course was extremely well mapped out, the crowd support was UNPRECEDENTED - and the views of the lake and Canada were beyond impressive.
The after-party included more food than I've ever seen, from beer to bananas, pizza to pop.
The kindness of the people living in the city of Buffalo is also unprecedented. They say in Buffalo you'll never meet a stranger. Totally true. Just loved everything about this race.
