Race was well organized, course had some cool scenery. Weather was a little warmer than usual this time of year but it is what it is. Swag was good: soft race shirt, glass cup, and the medal is pretty neat.

Love the changes to the course this year to include Celebration HS and the football field/track. This year was the 10th anniversary running. Course is fun and scenic, some dull parts running through neighborhoods but they’re neighborhoods of million dollar homes so it’s not TOO bad, lol. Always great swag, entertainment, top notch race production and race day resources. I will run it again next year too.

Course is an out and back at the local park, the race is a fundraiser for the local Shriners Temple (Bahia). The guys were great, the race director is experienced and puts on a great event. The entertainment was awesome, they even brought out the camel, Gus! Great medal and shirt, stroller friendly (ran it with my 4 Y/O in tow). Highly recommend it!

Some parts of the course are bland as you’re running through neighborhoods but they have funny signs and entertainment to try to keep it fun and lively. Course is nearly dead flat and easy, good first race for novice runners. Swag is always great and they try to out-do themselves each year with an awesome medal. I have ran this race 5 times over the years and am looking forward to 2023 for the 10th anniversary race. By far my favorite race to run.

Had a good time running this race. Ran it with my wife and pregnant sister-in-law. Even though I reviewed the elevation map pre-race, the elevation kicked my behind. Best story I got from the race was stopping at a Chik-fil-a on the race course for breakfast for my wife and sister-in-law and sprinting to catch up with them, and then running into the manager who’s team was volunteering to man a water station further along the course. He thought it was hilarious and gave us vouchers for free food lol. Overall had a great time and the swag was great. Race is a fundraiser for UM cancer research so I felt like it was a good cause to run for.

Race is mostly in the urban parts of Louisville with a stretch through a park. Ran past some whiskey places which was awesome too. Course was mostly flat except for a HUGE uphill part from mile 6-8. The afterpart was fun and I came within a minute and a half of a new PR. Overall was a great race, great theme, great atmosphere, and great event as a whole. 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend.

As a native son of Pittsburgh who grew up in Florida, I was super stoked about this race. Even though it was in May the weather was great for it, the course was awesome and you got to see many of the sights of Pittsburgh like Heinz, all 3 sports venues, and cross all 3 rivers. The swag was top notch and overall a great experience. The only negative to the event was since it starts downtown parking is limited and scattered.

As locals, my wife and I love Lakeridge so when they announced a race there we signed up immediately. The most challenging part of the day was the very first thing which was parking. They were not prepared for parking a large number of people at once and traffic was backed up for miles. Took them ages to get it straightened out and they had to delay the start times for the Half and 10K. Once the race started, the course was beautiful but challenging. Lots of hilly terrain in Clermont and it was on display. In fact, the last stretch leading to the finish line was like a quarter mile steep uphill climb.
I was looking forward to trying the race again after they took feedback for improvement but alas it was just one and done.

This was my first time running a VR race and it was awesome. I was a little unsure of their little hydro cup in place of disposables but after using it during the race, EVERY race should stop with disposables and use these. The scenery was AMAZING although the elevation made the course a bit challenging. Did the 5K the evening before the half so that I could do the challenge. Overall a great experience, made me want to run ALL the VR races, lol.

This was the first year they moved it from Tavares to Haines City and the course was a million times better. Weather in Feb in Florida is great for running and the course was mostly flat (hill in the first mile). A stretch of the course is on compacted clay and was faster than the asphalt portion. Great scenery running on clay roads through orange groves. it was a smaller race and at many parts there were few people around me which contributed to the overall feel of the race which was awesome. 10/10 would recommend!

This was a fun race with nice scenery along the Indian River (intercoastal). Did the north course so I could see the VAB at NASA in the distance which I thought was pretty neat. The north course has more elevation change than the south course so it was a little more difficult. I hooked up with one of the Galloway pace groups (I use Galloway intervals and was stoked to see the event had Galloway pacers) and went the distance with them. Great support on the course and good crowd. Swag was on point (awesome medal and I’m wearing the shirt as I type this, 7 years later). Running zone puts on good races and I have done other events of their was well.

I love visiting Savannah so I thought doing a race there would be fun. The morning of the race was foggy and humid and it was unseasonably hot for November. The race course was fun and the finish at Forsyth park was awesome. Even though they took additional precautions the heat was so bad that they had people dropping. Every other block we heard an ambulance going by it seemed. They ended up black flagging the race and started pulling people from the course. Luckily my wife and I were past the cutoff already and finished out the race. Of course the next day a cold front came through and it went from 85 to 45 degrees. Overall I enjoyed the race (organizers can’t really do much about unseasonably warm weather) and would recommend it. The Rock N Roll series always puts on a fun event.

Race weather was a bit warmer than expected so I didn’t run as well as I had hoped. The course was scenic running around the lake but the slope of the banking on the road around the lake was killer on my calves, had to stop and stretch several times. The last few water stations had ran out of cups but I had my water bottle to refill so I was good. Overall an enjoyable race.

This was the first race I ran that wasn’t a Disney race and it was great. The course is scenic, the weather was nice and cold, and the crowd energy was great. A little slow at times while running through some neighborhoods and the boardwalk portions can be slippery if wet but overall great event. Have ran it several times since and am registered to run it again next year.

I enjoyed it being a Night Race vs an early morning race. It gave it a lot more fun feel running through the parks lit up at night and the villains theme was pretty cool. IMO Disney doesn’t put on a bad race, lol. Shame it went away and the new incarnation of it won’t stay the same each year.
