Fools Dual Half Marathon | Race Recap

Fools_Dual_Logo_2013Race Location: Gloucester, MA

Race Date: 4/8/18

Race Managed/Timed By: YuKanRun

Organization of Bib Pick Up: Pick up was on race day & started at 8am.

Organization of Race:: Bib pick up was smooth & the staff were friendly. The 15 Porto potties at the start had a long line, but plenty of tp, even after the race. There were water & Gatorade stations at pretty regular intervals, with 2 also giving out gels. Police were driving the course to be sure drivers were safely driving around the runners since roads were open.

Course Description: The race is an out & back and is all rolling hills. The total elevation gain was 604 feet and the hills are challenging! The race is on open roads so runners are on the side of the road & sidewalks. The scenery is beautiful.

Spectators/Energy: The scattered spectators were energetic, and there were a lot of quiet spots with gorgeous scenic views. The announcer at the finish line had a lot of energy.

Swag: Big & fun finishers metal & wicking short sleeve tee shirt. There is also the option to purchase a long sleeve tee with all runners names on it.

After Party: None

Other Thoughts/Comments: The hills were a challenge & the town & ocean views are beautiful. Parking is somewhat limited at the middle school, so arrive early, like they suggest.
