Point to point 5k ending at Toronto city hall. Maybe for out of city people it
might be scenic but not much and you run on an underpass at a certain part. Course has one part where pedestrians try to cross and may distupt the race. Overall not doing it again.

The race took place in West Chicago so it is a bit different from the traditional setting of being right by the lake for the Chicago marathon.

I think the logistics and course were fine. The course was pretty flat. The route consisted of looping around Humboldt, Garfield, and Douglas park. It wasn’t a very scenic course but it was well marked and had great crowd support.

Not the best organization. They changed the 10K route last minute to be the 5K but with two loops. The race itself was delayed 30-40 minutes. I think the route itself is just okay but I would’ve liked a few more water stops.

Despite the tornado warning the night before, the weather on race day was beautiful. The event staff adapted the start time based on if it would rain/thunderstorm and it worked out in the end. The half course was well laid out and had pacers up to the 1:30 for half. Really liked the race and I’d gladly do it again next year.

The race day for 2022 was a fairly hot and humid. (Luckily a little overcast) The route itself has a lot of double backing and some areas where you take a detour on the path because it is the marathon distance.

It is a fairly flat course with mainly paved roads and some gravel areas. To be honest, the southern area of the river isn’t that scenic since it is just a park, and some areas have stray bikers or walkers who happened to stumble upon the marathon or half marathon route (which is a little a nuisance). Not a lot of people do this race and a lot of people walk the last mile or so of the picturesque San Antonio riverwalk ending. Overall a decent race but I didn’t perform my best.

This was my first marathon. A lot of people told me they opted for the half instead of the full marathon. At the time I didn’t understand why, but second half is not as scenic going around east austin and has some medium sized hills as well. I think in the future I’ll just do the half.

This was my first half marathon. I thought this was a good half marathon to set a PR. It is downhill from North Austin and ends right at the capitol with a beautiful downhill. I liked the event as a whole. (Since it is downhill from North Austin it isn’t very scenic) Also you get 3M swag which people may love or hate.
