We had such a great time at Shawnee Marathon yesterday. All interaction with race coordinators was so positive and helpful (we're the group that came from Cincinnati). Loved the shade on the course and the full water bottles provided for the full participants. Volunteers were very energetic and supportive. Nice medal & tech long sleeve shirt (although a more fitted cut for women would be nice) I didn't mind crossing the precarious bridge with the gravel- glad that got worked out. BUT the 4mi of gravel has to go. Was so painful, especially on my way back in. Also, another suggestion is to break out the prize money for the top 3 men and top 3 women. I'll definitely tell friends about this race & hope to run it again soon! Thank you!

Great race, nice that it's local. I would recommend for a half, not a full though. I wasn't anticipating as much gravel as there was. Well organized, friendly staff, awesome medal and shirt! Thank you!

Great race! I enjoyed the mix of gravel, pavement, and trail. It was a little harder than I expected but I enjoyed it. Well done! Oh and the medals are awesome!

Nice race put on by the new management team. The medals were awesome, the shirts were awesome, and the age group awards were also awesome. Great job! The only thing I was disappointed by was the amount of gravel road on the course. It was difficult to run on but the rest of the course was great.

Excellent race! Very well-organized, great shirts & medals, course was well-marked & check-in was a breeze. I know the new management company faced many obstacles with the event, but you would never have known that given how well the event seemed to go.
