Whiskey Hill is no joke. The first half is rolling hills with Whiskey Hill as well but the back half is mostly downhill to flat. Jackets were nice but they didn’t have them all delivered in time so MANY had to be mailed to individuals later.

The site clearly states what to expect but my brain apparently wanted to ignore it, lol! For the full marathon it was ~1300ft elevation! I was not mentally or physically ready for that! But again totally my own fault!! This was my first mainly experience and I would do another! There are some amazing warriors at these races and they’re basically a giant loving and supportive family!!

1st half was better than the 2nd. You’re more exposed to the winds and it was in our face for several miles. The bridge at mile 22/23 that you literally turn around at and hit twice with no relief was a real buzz kill. Overall course wasn’t really flat I had just under 450ft in ascent. I would run Jekyll Island GA again b/c it was more quaint, pretty, and truly flat. I’m not unhappy by any means though for doing it. I still think it was a good NC option. The medal is as big as my head which I didn’t expect, 🤣

Would recommend it if you’re looking for destinations. Small race, no frills, and would do it again. The weather was perfect this year. Ate Pizza at the Red Bug Motor Inn the night before, highly recommend it. Stayed at the Home 2 Suites which was perfectly next to the host hotel of the Westin, a 1/2 mile walk from the start, and a 5-minute walk from the finish.

Weather was in our favor this year but October in Florida is very touchy with temperatures and hurricanes. Expo was out of race specific shirts after the first day and I find this to be the case with most RNRs. This is disappointing because I always like the expo shirts more than the registration shirts. You run 3 overpass/bridges and some other hills which are no fun but the view over the water is nice. Also the medal was cute but little.

Weather can be iffy but overall unique sites of the rocket and city were enjoyable! Race directors were awesome with keeping you updated leading up to the start. I did the early start so can’t say much about the general start but even for the back of the packers, there was still food at the end of the race which was nice. It was a cold and rainy day so crowd support was certainly impacted.

Local race for me. Good town support. Pretty flat. Unfortunately, the 2022 race was said to be the final by the current race director. Hopefully, someone will save it. MORE

The hill in the middle SUCKED but overall enjoyable. Running it again in 2023 with a new course which looks to offer even better views of the capital! MORE

Not a ton of crowd support at least from a back of the pack perspective so mental preparation is huge. Basic short sleeve t-shirt but benefit was they were distance specific! Minimal expo.
