I love this race! Beautiful scenery, varying terrain. This is an event for all types of runners. From packet pick up to past the finish line, the volunteers are amazing, happy, friendly, encouraging. There are so many aid stations and they are so well stocked, that you can finish the race heavier than you started. Great selection of food in the recovery area. The wooden finisher medals are a nice touch. I’ve taken part in the half for the past 5 years. Maybe next year will be the year I get the courage to do the full.
