Today I’m running with Genia Bittner, who is the race director for the Atlantic City Race Series, which includes the Atlantic City Marathon.
The race series consists of 2 race weekends, one in the spring and one in the fall. The fall weekend includes race distances of 5k, 10k, half, and full. The spring weekend is a little more unique, with a 7k, 11k, and half marathon distance. So if you’re looking for a PR, a 7k or 11k race might be just what you need!
In addition to talking about the race weekends, here are some other highlights from our conversation.
- The Atlantic City Marathon is the 3rd longest continuous running marathon in the USA.
- The course is flat and fast, but watch out for the wind!
- Creating a 26.2 mile course on a 10 mile island, and recreating it multiple times over the years for a variety of reasons.
- Things to do in Atlantic City, other than visiting the casinos.
