Bob Breaks Out the Beer at Smuttynose Marathon, Hampton Beach

Congratulations to Bob Gralton, who ran the Smuttynose Rockfest Marathon in Hampton Beach, NH in 3:32.18 – fantastic job. From Bob:

On September 30th I ran the Smuttynose Rockfest Marathon in Hampton Beach. It was a flat fast double loop course around the Hampton Beach area with the last 5 miles running by the ocean similar to the Eastern States 20 Miler. The weather was great, a pretty good rain at the end didn’t dampen the fun at the finishing tent.

The race was sponsored by a brewery so there were more than a few libations as well as a band at the new hatch shell on the beach and great food.

I finished in 3:32 which was a good time for me although I was hoping for under 3:30 or my BQ time of 3:25 with the cool conditions and flat course. I would definitely run this race again or possibly the half marathon. On to the next one!
