Just curious if anyone here has run it or knows much of it? Not for sure if I'm going to or not but I'd hope to be able to do another marathon in '15 and since I have done the same one twice I'm looking for other options. I also joined the NY chapter a little while ago to keep track of happenings in my home state - grew up in Northern NY, about an hour north of Syracuse, and come up a few times a year to visit family. I have the week off leading up to the Empire State Marathon so its a possibility for a visit. I know temps are sketchy that time of year, its the same day as the Columbus Marathon and that has been borderline temp-wise and I figure Syracuse to be a few degrees cooler. I checked the course and then google satellite view and appears to be all paved (needs to be barefootable). But wondering if any of it is really rough.
