My favorite race so far. So many people out on the streets cheering you on and calling your name while smiling. Hills are definitely there but if you train on hills they are not that bad – plenty of downhill to compensate and recover. Aid stations every mile were stretched enough to not feel crammed and avoid stepping on each other. Only con was the bathrooms at the start – insane lines for each set of porta potties. Overall highly recommended!

I loved this race.

Pros: packet pickup was super easy – in and out in 4 minutes. Race started on time with perfect temps in the high 40’s. More than half of the entire course is on beautiful trails/boardwalks/paths. Very flat (200ft based on Strava as opposed to the 444ft on the official race site). Great swag.

Cons: nonstop emails from the organizers encouraging you to sign up (after you already did) and tell your friends. Post races party, while generous, could benefit from more fresh/healthy options

Overall I had a great time and recommend this race as a great Delaware option

Loved the new course. The looping around downtown allowed for a great atmosphere for the first five miles. Emotional segment through the St Jude campus. The rest of the course was standard city vibes. Aid stations were great although I only saw Gu gels once (maybe I missed the other one?). Great setup for the finish area celebration. Overall highly recommended.

This was my first VR. I volunteered the day before in the rain and it was a cool experience. Logistics were super easy and smooth. We gor great weather relatively to the area and time of the year – 60’s and foggy almost the entire race. The course itself was pretty scenic during miles 2-9 along the river and the elevation was not as bad as advertised – don’t let the course elevation map scare you. Only issue is that the the first mile was short and the course never corrected itself so overall it was .1 short (confirmed with other runners). Other than that no complaints, all the runners were super friendly and I PR’d! Recommended.

Loved the race course. Takes you through most of Atlanta’s landmarks including the stadiums, beltline and GA Tech. It was definitely hilly for a half – RunKeeper registered 870ft of gain – but you also get a good amount of downhill: two whole miles 6-8 and most of mile 12 (needed). Aid station every mile after mile 6 including two with cold towels. Great organization – recommended!
