The 2021 race was located in Lackawaxen, PA. Due to COVID precautions the race allowed runners to start at any time which spread out the runners. Ina addition the race production was kept to a minimum to prevent large groups of runners from clustering. However, this was a great race and awesome medals, a technical shirt and running jacket if you sign up during early registration. The entire course is run on the road, out and back Half Marathon (two laps for the Marathon) that follows the Lackawaxen River. I highly recommend the Two Rivers race!

I had to run the race virtually. However, the race organization was excellent, the shirt is extremely comfortable, and the medal is awesome. I am really looking forward to getting on the course in person next year. The new race venue for 2020 was easy to get to and the staff was super helpful during packet pickup. I hope there is a race-day packet pickup next year as this would make it easier for me to attend.

Cold start but great support by Central Park staff and NYRR staff to clear the roads for the race. The Fred Lebow Half Marathon course is two laps around Central Park on roads. Race day packet pickup was convenient. The race was busy but not too crowded. Race medal is shaped like a stopwatch and has a spinning second hand. After race snacks were minimal (bagel, pretzels and an apple) but plenty of water and gatorade stations during the run. Overall, great race in a awesome venue…just hope for warm weather!

I highly recommend this race. Extremely challenging but rewarding course. Scenic views from the top of Mill Mountain and winding roads and trails through Roanoke, VA. The race is well supported and has a fun finisher festival with live music, lots of food to refuel, and plenty of vendors. The race offers free photos, great finisher medals, comfortable race shirts, and unique award medals.

The 2019 race took place the day after a snow storm dropped 4 inches of snow on the course. Needless to say this made the single track trail very icy and slowed down the pace quite a bit. However, this race was well worth it. Great technical trail climbs and downhills, 2 miles at the beginning and end of the race along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and amazing views along the entire route. Awesome shirt and medal. My only complaint is that the 50 miler, 50K, and 25K all started at the same time. Due to the icy conditions this created a long line of runners (walkers) on the first 4 miles of single track trail.

Flat course along paved roads though quiet neighborhoods in Mandarin, Florida. The route has some stretches of picturesque roadways under large tree canopies. Race day check-in makes it convenient for out-of-town runners to register and race without having to be in town the day before Thanksgiving. Plenty of parking across the street if you arrive early. Lots of runners so there is always someone to run with or try to catch. Great long sleeve technical shirt this year and fun Thanksgiving day themed race medal.

The Hokie Half Marathon is one of my favorite races. This was my third time running and the race has gotten better every year. The race starts just south of the Virginia Tech campus in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center and runs down 460/Main Street to the Mall in Christiansburg (3 miles). Miles 3-8 are along the Huckleberry Trail, a paved running trail that includes several wooden bridges over streams and railroad tracks. There are two challenging hills at mile 9 just south of VT Lane Stadium and at mile 12. Awesome race swag includes a long sleeve technical shirt, short sleeve technical finisher shirt, big Hokie Bird finisher medal, and 13.1 car magnet. Great selection of snacks and drinks to refuel after the run. Several live music spots along the route and lots of spectators cheering you on. My only wish is that the run route would go through the VT campus (around the drill field or through Lane Stadium).

The inaugural Run the South Charlotte half marathon was a fun race. The course follows a nicely paved running trail that is shaded for the majority of the run. Some hills and several turns keep the run interesting. There are three turnaround points which allow runners to pass the rest of the field. I enjoyed all of the encouragement offered by other runners as we passed each other. It was a small field for the first year race which meant the trail was not crowded. Nice race swag with a comfortable shirt, SiliPint cup, and large finisher medal.

Extremely challenging course that includes over 7000 feet of elevation change including three mountains. The race runs up Mill Mountain, Roanoke Mountain, and Peakwood Mountain in addition to several neighborhoods in Roanoke, VA. The race is supported extremely well with over 20 water/aid stations and a huge finish festival that is great for the entire family.

One of my favorite races of the year. The Hokie Half offers a small-field of racers but a fun environment. Most of the course is on paved roads blocked off for runners. The most scenic portion of the run is a 5-mile stretch along the Huckleberry Trail. The finisher medals are big and feature the Hokie Bird (VT mascot). My only complaint is that the course does not run through the Virginia Tech campus.
