Top Ten List - Most Difficult Marathons

This is an older post, I keep an updated list of my most difficult marathons HERE.

Here are my ten most difficult marathon (or longer) races, out of the 29 I have run. Unlike the last list, this takes everything into account, including hills, elevation, weather, etc.
  1. 2011 Steamboat Marathon (6000+ ft elevation)
  2. 2009 Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio Marathon (heat and humidity)
  3. 2011 Bataan Memorial Death March (hills, wind, sand)
  4. 2008 San Francisco Marathon (lack of training)
  5. 2010 Ford Ironman Coeur d'Alene (112 miles on a bike before the marathon)
  6. 2011 Mesquite Marathon (downhill first half to kill my legs for the second half)
  7. 2011 ET Full Moon Midnight 51K (hills, distance)
  8. 2011 Double Decker Marathon (hills)
  9. 2008 Austin Marathon (first marathon, hills)
