Darkside Memorial Day Marathon

May 25, 2009
Luther Glass Park, Peachtree City, GA

The third ‘no frills, no entry fee’ Monday Morning Marathon of 2009 was held on Memorial Day (the first were on New Year’s Day and the 2nd Saturday in February as a fill-in for the Tybee Island Marathon as the latter took a—hopefully--one-year hiatus). Apparently our idea of filling the marathon void of three traditional holidays (Labor Day will be the next one) is catching on: the Los Angeles Marathon moved from its traditional March date to Memorial Day this year.

‘The two Beths,’ Beth McCurdy and Beth Preston ran together most of the morning and tied for first with times of 3:59:55. Tom Adair made his Memorial Day a memorable one by completing the 300th marathon and/or ultra of his running career. The day ended with three runners signing up for Darkside membership: welcome Terry O’Leary, Susan Kolbinsky and Chuck Savage!

The results are as follows:
