Tyler Rose Marathon
01 December 2019
The courses are best described as difficult but beautiful. The Tyler Rose Marathon course is very unique and it is all about running in East Texas, running through the country, around the airport, along the highway, through the neighborhoods and back in town make this a spectacular route. Plus the hills made it a challenging course. The marathon course includes shaded pastoral parts in the middle and once you get to mile 15, the last 11 miles are in the Azalea Trail area that is dotted with stately homes and is very beautiful.
Running through the country, around the airport, along the highway, through the neighborhoods and back in town make this a spectacular route. The course starts and ends at Tyler Rose Garden.
