*based on one loop

Time:

In 2018 the race had a start time at 6:00pm.

To no ones fault but my own, I expected the entire race to be at night, with no sun. You have about 2 and half hours of sunlight before you get that “at night” race experience.

Temperature:

Race time temperature was 82 F with humidity at 92%

Sometimes that’s just the hand you’re dealt.

Pro’s

  1. Well put together, great concept for a marathon race.
  2. Boston Qualifier
  3. Half the race is at night time (no sun)
  4. Plenty of water stops

Con’s

  1. Not a lot of signage (but mostly common sense turns)
  2. Still a “Small” race (I think more participants helps make the marathon a more enjoyable race)
  3. Half the race is during the day (sun/heat)

Bonus

After your race you get food and a beer! If thats something you enjoy doing after a marathon you’ll be in for a treat because right behind the start of the course is a BrewHouse where you can get some local beer.

Overall

I think if Hamilton NightGlow continues to put this race on it will grow and become a very popular race.
