Name: Jeffrey Smith
Event Name: St. Louis Rock n Roll Marathon and Half Marathon 2013
Event Details (parking, facilities, vendors, schwag, etc.):
This event was surprisingly very accessible for being in the middle of the city. Parking was plentiful but not free. The city was very engaged in supporting the racers throughout the whole event. Bands played every two miles or so and crowds lined the entire length of the race. St. Louis is hillier than it looks.
Race Details (length, obstacles, difficulty, etc.):
Length 13.1 miles
Mild elevation gain/loss
No obstacles except a few pot holes
Rating: 5 Stars (Excellent)
What would make this race better?: I would like to see some nutrition at the aid stations other than hydration.
