Kiawah Island vs Charleston

Charleston runners now have two marathons in their backyard and, since they are about a month apart, most people will only participate in one of them.  This year Kiawah Island reached capacity early, but next year could be a different story.  The Charleston Marathon committee will have a year under its belt and people might be looking for a change of scenery.  It will be interesting to see what happens.  I think we will find that people will run the Kiawah Half-Marathon in preparation of the Charleston Marathon.  What do you think?  Which one will you choose and why?  Email us at
