Admittedly under-trained going into event, I was pleasantly surprised and very grateful for the excellent organization. The hills were so slight and gentle that they were barely noticeable. Plenty of hydration stations. Well run finish line. Nice crowd support through last 8 miles. It's my understanding that this was the first year they hired a pacing company, and the 4:30 pace group definitely gave me encouragement and motivation.

Great organization. It is a runners run. Most significant drawback is that it is run on open roads. Can read my full race recap at http://www.everydayemstips.com/?p=1678

This is a great first-timers marathon, as almost the entire course is flat. You start running through cornfields and rural areas, hit the suburbs and finally finish at the Milwaukee lakefront. Watch for the accordion polka-playing farmer at around mile 5 -- a definite highlight. The crowds can be sparse in parts, but are definitely friendly. The October weather usually -- usually the operative word -- cooperates and allows for cool raceday conditions. Overall, a nice low-key, fun race.

This was my first Lakefront Marathon.

Course: A little boring if it wasn't for the mansions, and last stretch alongside the lake to look at it, but it was very flat, and friendly with limited turns and narrowings.

Crowd: Not a huge crowd by any means, but surprising given the actual size of the race field. The support near Concordia University was staggering.

Organization: Easily the most organized marathon in which I have been a participant. They've got this things down to a science, and for a point-to-point race, the logistics (for me anyway) were flawless.

Overal: I would rather try new races than do the same one every year, but now I'm worried everyone else is going to come up short.

Extra: Free beer, and the best race shirt I have ever received.
