I just wanted to take a second and compliment the organizers and volunteers at 2013 Bay State Marathon.
It was my first marathon and I had a great time. The course was very well marked. The accurate map of water stations and porta potties made it comfortable for a newbie like me to participate. The volunteers were great. The intermediate timers and on-course timing stations made it easy to monitor your pace. All around it was just very well done. Great job.
