This race was amazing. The course goes through beautiful scenic country landscapes with farmland among the Amish community. The spectators are Amish families and many volunteers support the runners. There are hot air balloons released at sunrise, and plenty of interesting food items.
Bird In Hand Race weekend has become one of my favorite events every year. This is the third time I've run the Half Marathon, as part of the "Fire Department Challenge" of doing the 5K on Friday night and the Half Marathon on Saturday morning.
