The course was through a park and 95% on paved trails. it was flat and we could see mountains all around us. Staff and volunteers were so wonderful. there were even gluten free cupcakes at the finish! The medal is gorgeous. I had a challenging time running at altitude, but I’m glad that I participated!

This was a beautiful course through Lewis & Clark park and campgrounds. It was on well maintained, paved paths. Lots of volunteers directing us and cheering us on, really wonderful. The only thing suboptimal was the wind. Sustained 35-45 mph with frequent gusts at 65 mph. The wind was brutal.

The course was through a lovely neighborhood with a small portion next to a freeway, on a side road. The 10k was a double loop. The production was great. At roughly the half way point for the 5 K, there was a water station. They also passed out leis, which was fun. This is my second race with this company and it was a lot of fun. The course had a couple of gentle hills. The road was closed to traffic which was great.

Running across the 50 yard line in this incredible stadium was one of the coolest running experiences I have ever had. I am no pro but I’ve run in 3 different countries and that finish was by far the best! The route was through the campus and gorgeous scenery. The people along the route and related to the production were wonderful. It was my first time in AL and I loved it. I highly recommend this run fest to everyone!!!

This was my first time in MS, and the people were so wonderful. The race production team was great as well. My only concern, and this is because I’m heavily addicted, was that there was no coffee at the start. Seriously, I might die without it lol. The live music on the course was fantastic! The reason the race didn’t score higher, and they don’t have much control over this is that portions of the race were in pretty rough areas and the road conditions were really poor in spots. Like easy to wipe out onto your face poor, if you weren’t staring at the ground. The aid stations and cheer stations were AMAZING! All of the people in the city and related to the race were fantastic. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, there was no actual festival of blues at the completion of the race.

Production was great! The park is very nice and the paved trail was flat and in perfect condition. They had an aid station with water and a wide selection of post race snacks. We were able to utilize the park building to warm up, use the restrooms, and enjoy the gorgeous view. It was a clubhouse, I think, with a bar and comfy seating. Volunteers were so cheerful and a delight. Great fun! I’d definitely run with this production company again.

This half marathon was mostly through a huge park on hard packed dirt trails or gravel. The only downside to the course was the killer hill at the very end. But wow, what a beautiful race. The signs along the way were hilarious. The volunteers were so energized and dressed up to make us giggle. It was such a fun run and well produced. I absolutely loved it. The Blues festival was really great too.

This was a fun casual 5 km race through the beautiful vineyard of 12 Corners Winery. It was around the vines and through the property, 99% on grass. At the end of the race you get a race wineglass and a generous serving of wine. Inside, there was wine tasting and fabulous products. It was a hoot! Not my best time, but so much fun!

5K Events did a fantastic job putting on this race. It was easy to register, well organized on race day & fun swag including a finisher’s medal. The course was out and back along north beach, on the paved trail. There was a small portion that took us through the zoo which was very cool. Only one hill, going up at the start and down to bring it home. We had an headwind for the first half, but I was still able to run a personal best. Great production, incredible location, lots of fun! Not a huge field, just 121 runners, which was perfect.

Fun run on grass through the vineyard. Up and down rows or gorgeous grape vines on a lovely sunny day. The winery then followed up with glasses of wine and other beverages. Pretty location for a nice run.
