The Mystic Places Marathon has a new name now: The Mystic Country Marathon & Niantic Bay Festival.

The course appears to be the same, so I imagine that not much else has changed about the race with the new name. I am sure that it is still a great (and quick) marathon course and thoroughly boring 10 mile course. Anybody in southern New England or along the northern Atlantic that is looking for a good marathon in the Autumn could certainly do worse for themselves.

If you have run it in the past, I imagine that they will be having some good deals on old apparel while they try to get rid of the old name.
