This is a great event for the entire family. Strollers and dogs are allowed with an awesome Kid Zone for during/after the race. It was a bit hilly but with music at a couple of spots (live band! keyboard player!) to help with motivation. Shirt option included the choice of tech or cotton long sleeve shirt. There were very nice finisher medals for everyone and there was even fake snow at the finish line! Oh, I almost forgot…everyone got a set of antlers too!! If I had one suggestion to improve the experience, it would be to have maybe 1-2 volunteers on the course where the 12k and 5k merge to help remind the 5k walkers to stay right in order to allow the 12k runners room to run on the left. My last mile was a full minute slower from having to dodge walkers and strollers.

There was lots of pre race communication, with the exception of the decision to not have finisher medals. This was my second year running the race and since there were finisher medals last year, I expected one this year. Other than that, I enjoyed the race. It is one of the bigger ones in the area, with close to 3000 runners, and includes a Kids Dash. The shirt was a very nice long sleeve gender specific tech shirt.

The course for this race starts at a sports complex and winds through a couple of parks, through town, around a lake, and up and down hills. It’s run on roads, greenways and a mulch trail. Runners earn points (1 point per mile raced) in the Run the Springs series and are rewarded an extra medal for accumulating 20 points. In my case, I ran the NC Spring Classic 16k in April and this race, thus earning enough points for the extra medal upon completion of this race. The medals are very substantial! The shirt was a decent long sleeve tee.

This was my 4th Rock n Roll race. If you want bling, do multiple Rock n Roll races! Production is always well organized. Lots of course entertainment and support. The Rock n Roll races usually have race shirts for sale on which the participants names are screen printed. The print is tiny, but it’s possible to find your name. Transportation was, for the most part, well organized. Just be aware that the race start and finish lines are at separate locations. Unless you want to walk another mile back to the ferry for transport to the convention center parking, you need to prepay for a shuttle pass. Overall, I really enjoyed this race. It is also walker friendly, especially for the half marathon, which my husband did (he had a full knee replacement and the doc won’t let him run).

U Can Finish 2 miler was followed by the U Can Finish 5 miler. Runners could choose either or both. If completing both races, runners were awarded an additional medal. The 2 miler medal was a small shield, the 5 miler medal was a bigger shield, and the “Distance Dare” medal was a shield that attached to the 5 miler medal with magnets. There was an indication on the website that this was the final year for the Distance Dare.

I participated in this inaugural event, choosing the 10 mile timed option. There were also 5 mile and 2 mile (untimed) options. There were plenty of volunteers and the race was quite organized. There were no finisher medals but age awards went 5 deep and lots of give-aways, including 12 pairs of running shoes. The trail itself was quite technical for the 10 mile race with a lot of switchbacks, rocks and roots. Thankfully the trail was well marked, since as the runners spread out, it was common to not see any other runner ahead or behind. A physical therapist was on hand to provide both pre and post run assistance.

The 5k and 10k courses start and finish at the same location at Floyd Lamb park, with the 10k branching off in the middle to get the extra miles. The course is very flat but most of it is not shaded, being that Las Vegas is desert area. There were adequate aid stations but not really any place for spectators along the course. The shirt was a very nice tech shirt and the medal was very pretty. All Moms finishing the race received a flower as well. Overall, it was a pleasant race and I would run it again, especially since it raised money for a great cause.

This was a tough race. There’s even a hill so tough that it has it’s own award category. The hill is about .8 miles long and comes late in the race. There is also a 4 mile race that starts before the 10 miler. Runners have the option to Double Down and complete both. The challenge is that the 4 mile race starts only 30 minutes before the 10 mile race. Those who are able to complete the challenge are awarded with 3 medals. I will probably run this race again, if only to better my time on Laurel Hill.

This was the first time Durham, NC hosted a National Women’s Running Series event. The first 3 miles were along streets, the next 5 miles were on a greenway, then the final 5 miles were back along the streets. The greenway was mostly flat while the streets had several hills. Overall, it was a decent event.

The course is flat and winds through beautiful neighborhoods and past the golf course and marshes on Kiawah Island. The full and half start together then split apart and rejoin again before the finish. The medal is huge with a spinner thing that says Marathon on one side and Half Marathon on the other side. The tech shirts have a unique artistic design. I liked the one from last year so much that I bought two more at the expo this year. I have heard that shuttling onto the island on race morning can be stressful. I chose to stay at the Sanctuary Hotel on the island so that I could leave my room 15 minutes before race time. Very convenient if a bit on the expensive side. When I am ready for my first marathon, I believe I will choose this one. As it is, I have already registered for the half marathon for next year.

I was in San Antonio on business and wanted to run a race while there. I chose this one. I wish I could have been there for the entire series of four races. Those who completed all four races received an extra medal. The race organizer, Scallywompus, is the best. Very responsive to questions and posts on Facebook. The course was a flat and fast greenway.
