Average Rating:  
Recent Review: Somehow I signed up for half but ended up being placed in full marathon. I have never ran more then 13.1 and I wasn't mentally ready or properly trained for 26.2. miles : /. I did tell myself i had to run a full marathon before I was 40 yrs old and so since my 37 b-day is this month, I WENT FOR IT! I was worried my body couldn't handle it but I knew being head strong is what helped me cross the finish line...with a time of sub 4 : ). Although it was a tuff and hilly run, i loved every minute of it and happy I took the challenge! I will forever remember this day. : ). Thank u to all who made Raleigh City of Oaks happen. AWESOME!!!
