This was a hilly course, there were only two that I had to actually walk up and for me that is a HUGE Improvement! The scenery was fantastic, ran over a covered bridge and the farm views. You are running on an active road so pay attention to oncoming traffic. Course support was great, water and gatorade was available to the runners.

The MC for the event made sure to remind runners of the turn around points. This actually made it very easy for me to gage where I was and the distance still to cover. It was an out and back course but this one I didn’t mind, probably because I am getting use to them but the scenery does help. I loved having those hills on the downward. The last 1 km is flat and then downhill to the finish line. I had a better run and I beat my goal time by 9mins, it felt good as I have a Marathon coming up in October. Helps with the confidence.

Overall, I loved how small this event was, I didn’t have to sway too much around runners in the first 10k and the last 10k there wasn’t anyone in my way. I would highly recommend this early September Run.

This is a very hilly course, no doubt about that. Running over the Bridge of the Gods was very interesting. Don’t look down if you are afraid of heights! It is an open grill and you can see straight down to the water.

The production from start to finish went very smooth. There were lots of Port-o-Potties at the start of the race which was great. They offered “start prizes” if you got on the first couple of buses as you had to take the bus to the start line. They had a pancake breakfast ready at the bus stop too.

Easy to find race package pick up and they even had a volunteer waving a glow stick to show where the buses were.

Course support was awesome with water stations and 2 port-o-potties.
Scenery was gorgeous to take in. Perfect running weather, could not have asked for a better day!

The only really hard hiccup was that the medals got lost in transit. A posting and email went out 2 days before the race about the lost medals. The day before the race, there was a long write up on FB outlining what really happened and what they were doing to correct the situation. So, the organization very much stepped up to the plate and are trying their best to make it right. Very sincere in their apologies and I do believe that they will live up to their customer service pledge. They were able to get engraved, glass water bottles (for your chosen distance) to give all participants as they crossed the finish line until the medals show up or new ones made.

Expo was very bland, just went to pick up my race package. Swag was very minimal, Medal was awesome
Course support wained by my 2nd loop.
I very much enjoyed the course
This is a smaller Marathon so it was really nice not having to dodge people on the course, made running the course very enjoyable.
The course support that did stay to cheer us later runners were awesome.
Vendors were packing up by the time I crossed the finish line, could have used a massage but they were already gone. That was hard as us that crossed around 12pm were very sore and our injuries aggravated.

This was an OK course. Not at all scenic until Mile 9-11, course support was sparse in some areas but got better through Mile 8 to the Mile 13. Lots of cracks in the pavement so watch your footing if the course remains the same.
The Expo was well done and easy pick up. Lots of space and did not feel crowded at all. The Headlining Act at the end was good until their music started to sound the same after 45 minutes, again lots of space to enjoy it and unwind.
Overall, I ran this once and probably would not do it again. It’s a city run and honestly, I am more of a outdoors runner.

I was quite disappointed with the Half Marathon medal. It is my least favourite medal and I should have done the Full Marathon instead. The course itself was ok, bussing takes you out to the start point of the Half. Running on the Interstate but the drivers had some courtesy. The best scenery was seeing the Old Man in the Mountain, probably would have had a better time if I didn’t stop for pictures and they are right about the “never-ending hill”

This should be on EVERYONE’S Half Marathon to do list!
From the swag, to the medal, to the organization of this event, to the events associated with this Half that you can sign up for, the package pick up, to crossing the finish line with a High 5 from the race director! they even have an APP that you can track your workouts on and get additional goodies at the race. Did I mention the medal! By FAR MY FAVORITE in my collection!

The weather was not the greatest for this race, cold, wind and heavy rains so there was no scenery to be had. The hills started to come in at almost the very end when my legs were going numb on the course. Not many bands playing probably due to the weather. This also happened at the time of the Vegas shooting so at the start you could see the heavy police presence as well as the overhead copters
There was a huge amount of people so the start was very much swaggered.

Loved everything about this race EXCEPT that they could have tried to get some big names in country music to sing to us along the course after all it is Nashville. Did run by a lot of stars home, scenery was great. However, if not use to the humidity, go a couple of days before, and bring double the hydration with you. They were running out of water pretty quick and they had to adjust the Marathon course because of the higher humidity and heat which made a lot of marathoners UNHAPPY!

Wear real trail shoes, I did as this is a trail run in the desert. Bring hydration packs, sunscreen, a hat made of UV protection, this is in the desert and when the sun came out, it was HOT! The views are awesome, and it is a technical trail. Easy to find and park.

What fun it was running through the tunnel! Bring a headlight and stay in the middle of the tunnel, the edges drop off unexpectedly and there was at least 1 girl who had a bloodied skinned knee but finished the Marathon.
Easy trail to run and the scenery was awesome! Old rail trail at it’s best!
Take the bus to the starting point, park your car at the finish line.

The only Hill was at the very start of the race, not much of a view until you start getting closer to the finish line at Torrey Pine State Park.
Awesome bussing system from the Park back to the start line if you have no one to pick you up.
This was my BEST PB time for a Half. The course was an easy course to run.
Medal is Fantastic! It is my 2nd Favourite in my collection so far.
