We Picked and Signed Up For Our 2011 Fall Road Marathon!

And it is . . . . . . . 
Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor, Maine! 

Continually ranked as one of (if not THE) most scenic marathon courses in North America, it runs all along Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park. 

You may have read about it in a recent Runner's World where it was chosen Most Scenic and 2nd Best Overall Marathon:



We are SO excited! We love picking out our races in advance, because we always have something to look forward to!

I just ran this 2 days ago. IT WAS GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!! Try to make it a really long weekend to hang out and enjoy the island and explore. There are a few campgrounds there you can stay at to save some money then spend in on playing tourist. Lots of trails to explore and you can go on boat tours too. Excellent choice.
