The race had great e-mail communication and was very marked and had folks directing traffic. It was not their fault the first five miles on the highway had heavy rain and 25 mile winds that you had to run in but running out of medals for runners coming in after 3 hours is not acceptable and running out of Mylar blankets for 3 hour half marathon and 3 hour marathons was even worse . I took my off and gave to a marathoner. Don’t advertise women shirt and then give unisex shirt and for these distances a cotton shirt. This race was point to point and I kept hearing flying pirates in April would be the race to run if you wanted to one in outer banks. I would have enjoyed the great post race party if I was not so cold

Great shirt as it had no list of sponsors on the back- long sleeve with collar and zipper, nice medal, great volunteer on course so you could not get lost . Water and Gatorade on the course . Scenic course with easy slight hills but I had problems with the humidity.

If you can survive the first few miles of up hill and wondering why you signed up, you will be rewarded with the most downhill I have ever run in a race. The weather was great – no winds this year. Aid stations were supported by boys and girls club who were very motivating. They did not run out of gu or bananas. The course was well marked and it was very peaceful to run and enjoy the quiet of just runners shoes. Great medal but didn’t care for the shirt- shirt had too much of the front. After party was good was free beer but also water and chocolate milk and cookies ! No corrals but had someone from local high school play the national anthem on her flute. That set the tone for enjoying this race

I did this race for fun as 100% of the race fees go to non-profits in the area. This race draws about 9,000 but has a hometown feel. It starts up with lion dance and then firecracker go off. This race was about thanking the volunteers and the sponsers who stepped up to make this race fun – cute shirt as someone designed it was sense of humor – you will not run the race for the medal but after party – choose bear or watching more local Chinese talent – it was race for the family – they had special 5k runner start, followed by 5k walkers start; I just wish they would start the 10K first which is why I opted down from 10k to 5k

This race was a lot of fun I picked up a great long sleeve race shirt in blue with name of race on front and nothing on the back Thank you race sponsors for that On your bib you got three drink tickets and parking validation good for race day And four return trips yo the mall I was glad I allowed plenty of time on race day to get to the parking lot as it took 20 minutes to turn right They did need more pot a potties at the start of the race That would be my only complaint The race course was great It was flat the weather was perfect and you got a chance to see the highlights of Cambridge If you middle of the packer like me there were some sections when you were on the bike path where it was hard to pass but you couldn’t change that There was a great medal and the post celebration took two floors of the defunct sears store So you were inside after the race Great selection of drinks and food It was one of the better post race events They also went all out if you came as team So try and find 20 running buddies to do this race

This is race is for a charity so I did take that into consideration It was a small race. Check in was the day of the race and communication was good There were plenty of water station but bring your own gu Mile markers were not always visible It was a beautiful race and volunteers were friendly there were apple and apple juice when you finished and then tacos and beer in the ski lodge I am swag junkie and was not impressed with the plastic medal and I purchased the prior year shirt because I did not like the current one

This was my third year running it – I lived in San Diego as a kid and moved away but i love to run this race and see how the city has changed. The course changed over the previous year and it was easier this year. A lot of folks come out to watch the race and cheer the runners on… I was running with a buddy who had not trained and so we took it slow and I stopped to take pictures and have fun.. The ice cold shot of tequila offered at mile 3 was fun… No one else stopped but I was running this race to have fun. I loved the flags and the folks holding them . I was told the shirts have been blue and red to remember our fallen soliders. The race is big but the streets can handle them. I never had to run in or around runners. If you run the Rock N roll in Los Angeles, you will pay the $15 for parking. That is just the way it is unless you know the city and are willing to walk. I like the Rock N Roll expos because Brooks and Toyota are big sponsers so we got to test drive a Prius and have our gait checked for correct shoes. Brooks also had special potties at the start if you spent $100 which was easy. There were short lines. I got my shoes on sale and would do the Brooks potties line again.

If I lived closer to Ohio, this would be a repeat race. This race had been suggested to me by someone who lives there and it looked like the town came out to cheer us on. There were different groups at each mile – favorite was the old folks’ home with signs” This is what happens when you don’t run” and the high football team with the ballon arch at mile 12…. You felt like you had to run your best … And the swag was awesome. A plaque for my four medals, another nice gym bag to carry running gear and I was the only one on the plane who carried back their poster and had it framed so I can remember the fun I had at this race.

This is billed as a family race and it held up to it’s name with up to four hours to finish the half. I liked that they also had an 8K for those who wanted to move up from running the 5k. I was warned about the parking and got there downtown as 6:00 with no problems with the parking. There were seperate starts for the half and the full although we did meet up at the end. Mostly flat course – highlights was the beer at mile 8 and at this point they had water stations every mile. Plently of folks cheering and a few with snacks to choose from. Would have wanted to run along the James River but we did the city streets. The race ended at historic Tredegar which was beautiful and nice to look at while you relaxed with Sierra Nevada beer. I received a nicely designed long-sleeve T-shirt, nice medal, a very cool finishers blanket and a cap. Nice touch when you got you bottle of water at the finish line, they switched the cap open so you did not have to struggle with – liked the bagel but the bananas were raw, trail mix was good but the question of the day – who thought of having pizza at the end of the race? This was only eatten by those runners under 30. It was a fun race overall and coming from Los Angeles, I was grateful to run somewhere that was under 60 degrees!

I would recommend this race. It was well run and probably had under 5000 runners. Plenty of parking and 7:00 start time. Everyone started at the same time but there was plenty of room for everyone to run. There were lots of water stations and plenty of water. Your bib was mailed to you at no charge. You could pick up your tech shirt the day of the race. It was a cute design of the front and blank on the back of the shirt. You also got a bag with the shirt. This is something you no longer see and you could them in at gear check. You had your choic of four different beers at the end of the race or champagne and you only had to wait less than five minutes. There were cute surfer guys handing out medals . In the beer area there folks on stilts to entertain you and cute surfer girls you could have your picture taken with. There was a celebration run sign with a surf board next to it for pictures you could take. That had a quality electrolyte on the course. There was only the uphill when you were going over the overpasses. Only complaint is there was lot of miles in the hot sun with nothing to take your mind off the heat but I as thankful for the frequency of the water stations in those areas. The race was priced under $100. Good value. I would recommend it.

Long beach had record heat this week and I was so happy to hear that they would allow the half marathons to start with the marathoners as it was already hot at 5:30 and I think they learned from the Los Angeles marathon this past March that had record heat too. This is my fourth time running the race as it is flat and there are wide lanes to run most if the race so you do not have to weave in and out of runners. There is great volunteer and fac support so there are folks cheering you along the way. Registration is easy and they have a great expo although this year there seemed to be less vendors. I recommend spending the night in long beach so you do not have to fight the crowds. Great grassy areas to relax after the race and when you do the race three times you become beach bum which means better beer and quiet place to relax after the race with your own not stinky potapotty. Also get coupon for the aquarium so you have something to do with the kids after the race. There are about 20,000 plus participants and it is a good race if you are Boston bound. I did my personal worse in the race. Too hot to run and it is usually in the 60’s with a nice ocean prize. Lots of great photo ops.

great volunteers on the course with water and gatorade but you need to bringb your own gu the police were great at stopping traffic an nd trhen even offered me their coffee it was a flat course and the creek would have been nicer if it was not year 4 of a drought, Race started on time with chipper anouncer. Logo for the race with cute and that was why I signed up. My own complaint is that it said tech tee shirt and it was Haines cotton tee It should have said what it was,,,,shirt to wear after the race….We lucked out and it was not in the 100, Plenty of parking and it was out an back on bike trails so you could nt get lost.. great race value with pancakes after you finished

They need to improve registration. It was one if the worst. The signs for the bibs so you know what line to wait on were at waist level which meant that they could not be seen. You waited in line for 40 minutes hot and cranky. Need to do something different next year. Also the shirt was cute but we expect a tech shirt that is dri fit. Disappointed and do not know when I will wear it. Highlights. Fitbit was there and I now run with this. I also liked kicking horse coffee who was at the start of the race giving free coffee to runners who had to get there an hour early. Also want to do a shout out to lucid media who took great photos and show special of 19.99. Lots of space at the park to do wine tasting. And because the race starts uphill you lose the slow walkers right away and I did not have to weave in and out of folks on the race. Ps. I am not that fast but… I do recommend the race and make hotel reservations early
