We ran another VR in 2018 and were excited to tackle another one if their races. I ran the race with my dad and it was his first half. We choose a doozy! It is accurately described as tough and sandy and is not a course for the weka of heart. The course is not well lit but VR makes it clear that you need lighting to see. The sand is a challenge the entire run with only maybe 1-2 miles total being on road. If you have bad knees or ankles this course could be dangerous and this is not a course to look for a PR on. The beginning section includes a decent amount of uphill. Overall we greatly enjoyed the race and look forward to another VR in 2020.
