The race got started late by 3 minutes. It has a combination start with marathoners and half-marathoners co-mingled. I usually prefer races that don’t do this, or have clear differentiation in bibs between the two races, but sadly that was not the case here.

The course is hilly, but fine. You see a lot of Atlanta, e.g. running by the Carter Center, Ebenezer Baptist Church, Clark University, etc. However there are very few spectators and the roads are only partially closed to traffic (e.g. you have one lane, but cars are still zipping by you on the other side of the cones).

Some other notes:
1) Gels are provided at mile 8 and 18
2) There was no on-course entertainment (e.g. bands)
3) The course has a section where you run on grass to get onto a track to run 300 meters on a track
4) The course has a few U-turns
5) The award ceremony only announced first place male/female for overall, master, and grandmaster
6) The expo is very small. 5 minutes in and out

All in all, it’s a

Contrary to stereotypes about German efficiency and organization, I found the expo and start lines quite chaotic. Regardless, this is a flat and fast course. The best thing is that it attracts other fast runners so you will always have somebody to run with.
