I love the race, with the exception of one thing. When running on the boardwalk portion of the course...particularly on the return...it is extremely annoying having to dodge the boardwalk public, who are strolling along the boardwalk...in front of racers. Also, the lack of race marshalls in this area is frustrating. Homeless people harassing runners and the public not caring that they’re in the course isn’t what I like to experience when running a half marathon. A closed course, or at least a marked course and course marshalls is what should be. This is my 2nd year running the half, experienced this same thing both years and that is the reason why I won’t run this race again.
