This race starts early-first heat at 6am, which means boarding the shuttle at 4am (driving to start line isn’t an option. The course is mostly downhill, starting on a dirt trail, which is a little rough, and then continues onto pavement, and is paved the rest of the way. It starts in the mountains and has nice scenery all the way. At the finish line shuttles take runners back to their cars.

There are plenty of aid stations along the way.

You can camp at the finish line or stay in a hotel (there are several nearby). I stayed at the Sierra Sky Ranch which had clean, comfortable accommodations and felt very “homey”.

The race is not in Yosemite, but borders it. I drove in to the park Saturday, after the race, but the park was so congested it was hard to enjoy. If I did it again, I’d visit on a week day, and take a guided tour so I wouldn’t have to worry about parking (or lack there of).

Flat/easy course, a little warm/humid for a northwesterner. It’s not as scenic as some of the courses I have run, but it was all new scenery to me, so that made it enjoyable. There were two port-a-potties set up at each station (so it was about a 15min wait to potty on the course). I did not stick around for the after party bc we were headed for Sea World right after, but it looked like a great time. Loved the medal!

Excellent aid stations, very beautiful scenery, a little hilly, well organized. I ran this one with a stroller, and had no problems with this course (other than a grumpy baby starting at mile 5). We didn’t get to stick around for the after party, but the food looked delicious.

This was the easiest of the 3 half marathons I’ve completed. Very nice scenery on the course, and in the surrounding area, if you have the time to go explore. Well organized, plenty of aid stations. Did not stick around for the after party as we wanted to go explore Jackson, Wy immediately after

This is a very popular race in the Washington/North Idaho area which means lots of runners and tough to get around other runners. There is one big hill (Doomsday Hill), but otherwise not too challenging. Lots of festivities afterward!

This was a fun and relatively easy course, with an awesome bonus of chocolate at the end. I took a wrong turn and ended up running 6+ miles (oops), but had fun nonetheless. The trail was very beautiful and well maintained.

I was a little overconfident in my running abilities when I signed up for this race. This is a tough run, with about 3000ft of elevation gain! Only a couple of aid stations, so it’s a good idea to pack some water. The trail was in good condition. Much more fun than most road races.
