I did short video this morning of the start/finish lines to kind of show everyone where things are. (Did text blog and enbedded the video, or here is just the video blog.)

LIVE2run4life - on room not sure at this point, I tried to pick hotel close to both Expo and the bases.
I just cked where your hotel you are about 30 mins from the base. But you have real straight trip in.

Take I-75 (South) to Route 4
Take Route 4 (East) Get off at "Harshman Rd" (go south)
The cool part is Harshman become "Woodman" the gate is 2.5 miles from exit
The base will be on your left, and the gate will be left turn as well

To get to the Expo use the same directions, but just past where you go in the gate.
Turn left on to Airway Rd, (Airway rd becomes Col Glen Hwy), the Expo is about 4 miles
from the intersection of Woodman & Airway Rd
(Once you will past Wright State Unv, you there Nutter will be on your left)

(Coming from the north is actually a nice way to get to the marathon, plus you will have chance to see base)

Thank you, Tom, for the great info. I can attest that the earlier you get going for a parking spot the better off you are. It will be dark when we get there but it will get light fairly soon. If you are not sure where the starting are is just follow the crowd as they are all heading that way LOL.

MCCOURTT, do those hotels have actual rooms available? When we booked some weeks ago, we couldn't find anything available close to the base.

Laurie, we are staying at the Residence Inn Dayton, North (7237 York Center Drive).

General information on race day.
----------------------------------------
------
1) Traffic around the base is mess around 7:00am if you are going to park on base
GET there early it is mile plus from any parking, to the starting line.
(The parking is on the old air field, so just getting to the gate can be hike)

2) It will be DARK, at 7:00 bring a small flash light (you can ck it with your gear)

3) Bring warm clothes its been in the low 60s most morning, and it can get windy down
by the starting line. (again you can ck your gear)

4) BEST gate if you are going to park on base, "Woodman Gate", as you enter the gate go LEFT if possible, try get to the fence. (There should be big lights marking the entry to the actual bases)

Oh that's right. I had a lot of life's stress going on in that period of time and my brain was rattled. Too bad Catherine didn't make it into the Country Inn. THAT would have been so awesome!!!!
