This was my first half in 3 years. I signed up in the spring and ultimately did not train as consistently as I have in the past. 2 weeks before race day I decided I would just go ahead and see how far I could get and I am so glad I did.
I had so much fun running this race! It was well-organized and started on time. There were plenty of people handing out water and energy gels, and a lot of spectators along the route encouraging you. The hills are tough, but the route is absolutely beautiful.
Ran this race alone since my usual running group couldn’t and I would do it again in a second! Although lots of challenging hills the organization and support of this run was well felt throughout race. I never felt alone and it was a gorgeous 13.1 miles!
This is the second time I’ve run this race & I loved it. It is a race with a local vibe, but very well organized & run on an incredibly beautiful course. (But the hills are kinda brutal!) Everything is on time & runners get a $10 off coupon for the local running store.
I had high expectation for this event, at least from organizing perspective but it didn't. Very poor management and organizers. its not worth the penny you spent on this event. Hope the money they have collected from me will go to charity.
