review of 2012 Hamptons Marathon.   

4 / 5 Stars


Great small town marathon. Only a few hundred runners. Very scenic course. Quite hilly, be prepared it's New England! Get to keep warm in HS gym before race. Race day packet pick-up available.

Race Tips

A hilly course and some of the hills are quite steep. Luckily most are in the first half after mile 17 it's mainly flat or downhill. Circle a lake and get a few nice views (especially around mile 18). Final few miles are on a busy road so be careful.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

I stayed with friends in Maine. Not sure where to stay. Bristol seems quite small.
