Marathon FAQ

Answer: Avoid crowded races. Most runners in the large population events run more than three-quarters of a mile farther than marathon distance. Since you don’t get credit for the extra distance, it is harder to run goal pace in these venues. Look for smaller marathons that have a good record for producing fast times. Visit www.marathonguide.com and www.RunnersWorld.com for a lot of information with runner reviews, which are usually quite revealing. Courses that have slight upgrades of short duration allow for a varied use of muscle groups, which often helps in reducing muscle fatigue. There are many downhill courses that can help speed you up – if you train on downhill courses. While you cannot control the weather, look for venues that tend to have high temperatures of 60 degrees F (15 degrees C) or cooler during the month when you are running your race.
