50th running of this race, one of the oldest marathons in the US. I had also run it in 1975. Small race, usually 200-300 runners, great cameraderie. Hilly course might be a detraction for some.

You've heard the rumors of a new HOA course for 2017. Well here is what you've been waiting for. There is a slight change to the start and a brand new finish!!! Don't worry you still get to tackle Easley Hill and the rolling hills of Route N and 163
