Good race as usual. There was a little bit of rain but the organizers made some adjustments for it. The half-marathon course is primarily up and back on PCH, so it is easy to stay focused on your pace.

Dubai is a nice city with a lot of interesting buildings. But, the race organizers have opted to have the race on a flat, fast course without much scenery. Perhaps, if the race grows in size, they will decide to show off more of the city.

Well organized race. Flat course with a lots of turns. The race was crowded most of the way, which worked for me so I did not overextend myself. The water stations were well-marked, frequent, and easy to access. The weather was good for running (60 F, overcast, light rain at times). Overall, it was a very positive experience.

This was my 4th time running this race. It is a tough race due to all of the turns. But it is in a beautiful area and they have a good breakfast afterwards. The wait for the medal ceremony was a little long since they have multiple races.

Large race around the city sites. A lot of spectators cheering and musical groups performing. A very positive experience. Although there were many start groups, my start group 5 was crowded for the whole distance. This was partly because a lot of the race was on bike trails. But it is best to start at the front of your start group if you want a PR. The T-shirt was not included in the price, but you could buy one at the expo.

Nice race around the Georgia Tech campus with around 1300 runners. The course had a few hills and turns so PRs are difficult to get. Good value for the low race fee (e.g. plenty of refreshments at finish; good quality T-shirts; well organized). But, if you want a medal, you need to finish in top 3 of your division.

I heard that the weather was worst it has been in 30 years. The race crew did not seem to be prepared for the heavy rain. The staging area was under a tent, but we stood in mud & puddles. The walk from the staging area to the starting line took around 45 minutes in the rain. I was soaked before I started. I also should have better prepared for the weather. Nevertheless, I hope that I can get in again so I can enjoy the Boston experience in better weather.

It calls itself the World’s Fastest 5K and I cut over 2 minutes off my PR. So, I guess they are right. It is a flat course with two 90 degree turns and two 180 degree turns and the rest is straight. Received a nice shirt and medal and drank two beers while listening to an 80’s cover band. Very nice experience in a great town.

Fun local race. The course runs along the cliffs overlooking the ocean for the first half mile, and then through the Corona del Mar neighborhoods for the remainder. There are a lot of turns so it can be difficult to maintain momentum. Plentiful post-race breakfast provided by local restaurants.

With 50,000+ runners, there was a smooth start due to the multiple waves. The course was mostly flat winding through the city of Boulder, but I was not used to running at 5000+ elevation. I thought arriving a week early would do the trick, but I still ran around 2 minutes off my PR. The race ended in the Univ. of Colorado stadium, which was a unique experience. There were lots of booths set up outside the stadium with free food, drinks, and other stuff. There was an elite runners team race at the end, which we could watch on the big screen and see them finish once they entered the stadium. Finally, there was a Memorial Day ceremony that included paratroopers from each branch of the military parachuting into the stadium. Overall, a great experience and we were out before 1 PM.

It is a flat course through downtown Huntington Beach, local neighborhoods, and Pacific Coast Highway. Running along PCH is nice for a while, but it does get boring. There is beer, music, and a health expo at the end, which are nice features. It is a very well organized race.

Well organized race; nice to meet runners from all around the world; flat course and surprisingly not very crowded at the start (I was able to get on my pace very quickly); water stations at each mile kept me hydrated; lots of cheering spectators to keep you going; nice poncho provided at finish, but not sure of its utility after the event; there seemed to be a rush to get you out of Central Park after the finish (I guess for security reasons) – after running 26 miles, I just wanted to sit down and rest a little (no such luck)

This race was more of a fun run since it had over 40,000 runners. It was hard to get a good pace going. Spokane is great. This race seems to be one of their main events of the year. There were several bands playing along the route, as well as a lot of cheering spectators. The race is inexpensive ($20) so there are not many freebies. There were vendors at the finish line selling food and drinks. One thing that I have not seen in other races was that there were people along the race course selling drinks, food, and ice cream (I guess this was mostly for the ones walking the course).

The course was very flat so it is good if you are going for a PR. The beach scenery got a little boring; 16 miles of the race was along PCH or the boardwalk. The water stations were spaced appropriately. Several bands along the way provided entertainment, which was nice. A lot of cheering spectators helped to keep the motivation high.

This race is very well organized. It is a nice course through Atlanta. It was raining this year so there were not as many people along the course to cheer us on. They start in waves, so if you get in the correct wave, you do not need to dodge the other 60000 runners.

Since I had only recently restarted my running program, I did not have a race time to submit during the registration. Therefore, I was put in the second-to-last wave (~2-hour runners). Even though I started at the very front of the wave, I was zig-zagging the whole course trying to get past the walkers and slower runners.
