Liked the new course, constant hills but less elevation than last year. Ran out of Gatorade on second loop. No swag and Expo was a joke. Bad course management, poor signage, two marshals on the entire course, streets with no cops. Bananas and granola bars at the end, had to look to find the jambalaya.

Hilly course – rated @ 950’, my Garmin said 1,250’. Streets varied in conditions with some quite potholed.
First full year under PEM, lots of room for improvement:
Too few water stops – 2.5 mi.; 5.0 mi. ; 8.3 mi., but better in second half although several were set up by residents.
Very little local business involvement compared to past years, e.g. NO coupons in swag bag.
Little music on course compared to past years.
Post-race food was a joke – bananas & granola bars. Past years had pizza, chocolate milk, beans & rice, etc.
They did have nutrition at several of the water stops 👍.
