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.
Race time temperature was 82 F with humidity at 92%
Sometimes that’s just the hand you’re dealt.
- Well put together, great concept for a marathon race.
- Boston Qualifier
- Half the race is at night time (no sun)
- Plenty of water stops
- Not a lot of signage (but mostly common sense turns)
- Still a “Small” race (I think more participants helps make the marathon a more enjoyable race)
- Half the race is during the day (sun/heat)
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.
I think if Hamilton NightGlow continues to put this race on it will grow and become a very popular race.
