This was my first time running the Durham 1/4 Marathon...I ran the 10.549km route...Was nice to be back in town as I grew up in Oshawa and had not been back in years so it was euphoric to run back in time and see some sights I hadn't seen in a while...My company Run For Fun Cruise Tours also sponsored a booth at the finish line and the runners we encountered were very nice and it was a great day all around.

* GREAT organization of the event, Amanda, Alex, and the rest of the crew did a phenomenal job in making sure the event was carried off with precision
* Nice to have the shuttles back and forth from the start of both the 1/8th and the 1/4 marathon routes and the finish line...Good loop to take...If you wanted to leave your car at the finish and just take the shuttle down to the start and eliminate a lot of the headaches of parking downtown, there is ample room for cars at the finish
* beautiful route for the 1/4 marathon, starts from downtown City Hall then dips down into a pathway where you follow along the Oshawa Creek all the way down to the lake, then a beautiful run along the lake and the marshes before a fairly good size hill and the finishing chute
* lot of good post race food and vendors, misting tent, massages, etc...Very well done
* good medal supporting a great cause with #runforothers and #dqm2018 supporting homeless youth
* good mc at the end, although he missed me coming in, no biggie, only one other person with me but I had my bib on my leg
* this is a really nice event to run and the people running it are great
* shirts were nice and soft and we funny enough we both use the same company in Zorrell
* recommendation-just put your vendor tents closer together next time so people are not so spread out...We had a great spot across from the food tent however there was a lot of space in between vendors-try and create a pathway so people are walking through and are able to see everyone that made the commitment to be there
* If you had the shuttles for longer, more people would stay instead of thinking they had to skidaddle to get back downtown to get their car
* We had a good time and will be back in 2019
