I have had this race chosen as my NC race for years. I am always looking for something that makes a half unique before choosing it and I saw that past races had Marines handing out the medals at the finish line, plus the battleship, and I thought it would be a cool race.

I was disappointed all around. There were no Marines. The race had THREE bridges at the very beginning, which killed my legs, but no worries, I was prepared for that. Going over the bridges was probably the most scenic part of the race. We ran through a park as well, but not much scenery. There was also very little crowd turn out, which IMO, really makes a race. I was also disappointed in the aid stations- I felt like there should have been more of them. Now, this may be me being biased because after the first 6.5 miles, I wasn’t feeling well and really needed those aide stations, but I felt like I kept waiting for one to appear.

The production itself was seamless. It started on time, timing was good, and I didn’t feel like it was too bad with the half and 10k starting at the same time. The packet pick-up was also well run and wasn’t a problem getting my stuff, although they gave my son a half marathon shirt even though he was running the 5K.

Wilmington is a nice area and we had a fun weekend there. I’m glad I got my NC race done but may do another just to make up for not enjoying this one.
