Poster: not a bad race
Subject: RE: Gebrselassie on Detroit Marathon
I came from Toronto to run the half. I really like the city (don't ask) and the course. There was probably more crowd support in Detroit than in Toronto, and Toronto's downtown is a hundred times more vibrant than Detroit's.
The course was changed slightly, it now finishes on Woodward just south of Grand Circus Park by Campus Martius or whatever it's called. I don't know how good of an idea that is for a late October marathon.
It's a pretty interesting course. You can definitely divide the half marathon into thirds: Detroit, Windsor, Detroit again.
The organization was great, the people were great and the city is not as bad as it's made out to be. Detroit has some amazing architecture and a lot of history. The downtown area, at least, is as safe as any major city in the world, albeit rather dead on a weekend.
