I thought this was the perfect size race. There were plenty of runners to include pacers for 10 minute increments, but the field was never elbow-to-elbow once we were over the start line. The biggest downside to that the start and finish are miles apart, so runners are shuttled to the starting line. This is okay for the marathoners who start about an hour after the shuttles stop. However, the Half Marathoners have a long, minimum 2 hour wait for the race to begin. Thankfully, they offer bagels, peanut butter, bananas, and coffee while waiting! And bag check (school busses) don’t leave until shortly before the start of the Half, so you can wear plenty of warm clothing until it’s just about time to run. The course itself has some hills and few spectators, though residents come out to clap as you run through neighborhoods. Volunteers handing out water and Nuun were plentiful. Overall, a good race aside from the early start with a long wait.

The race itself was well organized, clearly marked, and the volunteers were great. The course is out and back, very hilly, and around mile 6 you climb steadily for 100 feet. At the end, you receive a shiny new metal and a bowl of chocolate fondue with pretzels, a banana, and other fun things to dip. There was some beautiful urban scenery, but some debris on the roads caused quite a few trip ups to fellow runners.
