This was an inaugural race. Only 50 marathoners, some 100 half and few more 5k racers signed up. It was a rainy day and It felt like half of the people that were suppose to race did not show up. Water stops were fairly evenly spaced out with plenty of water / Gatorade and some of them had GUs and other food. My garmin showed over 1800 ft of elevation gain. None of the hills were particularly challenging but they were never ending and one right after the other. First half of the race was somewhat scenic – course goes over 3 bridges and a dam. Second half felt half assed – they sent us out on a rural road with nothing to see there which made it very mentally challenging considering constant rolling hills. Race medal was very nice and there was chicken broth at the end with your usual carby junk food. Overall winners got hoodies and beanies, age group winners got coffee mugs.

Well organized hilly half marathon. New course this year. Only two water stations. Second one was farther than indicated in instructions. Nice hoodie for swag. MORE

It is a two loop course going through historic downtown and around the city. It has a great atmosphere with tons of people cheering on over entire course. It is a very flat course.

The Good:
Aid stations are evenly distributed (about every 5k) – Water on all of them, variation of gatorade on every other.
There were couple of food stations – bananas, oranges.

The Bad:
No enforcement of corals – I’ve seen D coral people in the very front – very frustrating to pass on cobble stone (right at the start)
Porta-potties are accessible by general public which means you stand in line behind people that do not run wondering whether you make it to the start line on time.
