Course is fairly flat, even the bank on the raceway is slight, I took way too many pictures along the way. Stop and kiss the bricks to carry on the tradition. Fairly good number of aid stations, and lots of spectators along the way, wish there was more fan support (ie snacks, alcohol) along the way. Would rpeat again at least once more.

A little chilly at the start, 28 degrees, but warmed up to about mid 50s. Race run on combination of roads and paved trails. Very nice trails with lots of nice woods and shade. Plenty of rolling hills and nothing too crazy. Sadly there was no alcohol on the course with exception of great jello shots at mile 26 aid station. They were great and refreshing, had 3! May run this one again. I was one of the 5:30 pacers, had a blast!

Everyone was a first timer on this new race, hillier than expected. The first half-ish was running on surrounding roads and through neighborhoods, the second half was essentially running around the campus. Finishing on the 50 yard line of the stadium was a very nice touch, great refreshments and beer. Good race, may do again if I am nearby.

So it was my third time running this race in the past 4 years, but my first time pacing the 2:30 half. Kind of a thin crowd, had a few runners that were running just behind me on the course. They changed the course again and went up a longish hill near an observatory, plus the measurement on the course was off by about 1/4 of a mile. All things considered, nice weather, nice refreshments, and a friendly crowd. Nailed my pacing by a few seconds.

Race day started out about 72 degrees and progressed to nearly 80 degrees at the end. The good thing was they had water/gatorade/portapotties at every mile, definitely needed. The first half was over the causeway and up through South Beach, very enjoyable scenery. Nice crowd. Then over the causeway and down through downtown. The second half had us run down the coast to coconut grove and back, kind of boring until the turnaround right downtown in coconut grove while people had brunch. Not my best performance, but due to the temperatures I will take a finish anyday, will run again.

When anyone offers and odd distance, I am there. Quarter marathon, weather was decent temp ~60, slight wind, course has one medium sized bridge as far as hills go, but basically and out and back course. Not a ton of locals were out with their usual libations, but was a very nice crowd to run with.

The previous day it reached a high of about 60°, but on race morning it was a chilly 36° and windy at 16mph. Started on time, great amount of runners. Course is nice and relatively flat with the exception of one overpass bridge. Public run drink stations along the way provided plenty of alcohol along the way, supplemented but water stops asking the way. Very fun race, I had a beer, a bloody Mary, another beer, a shot of honey Jack Daniels, a fireball shot, a mimosa, and after finishing a nice 16 oz yeungling. Will definitely run again, when it’s a little warmer.

Very nice local half, great crowds, awesome pre-race environment as it is around the holidays. Course is a little wonky, but you won’t get lost. Hills and inclines keep your body guessing what is coming next. The last leg goes along Lake Dora for a couple of miles to a turnaround and then back to downtown. Lots of water stops, really enjoyable race.

So a 12K is roughly 7.6 miles, I would say train for a 10k basically, starts off with a huge downhill which is nice, most of the course is on bridges overlooking the water, with Mobile in the distance. Very nice views, can see the Battleship finish from a good distance as well. Very well produced with good swag.

Luckily it didn’t get as hot as they were predicting, decent amount of fluid, and snack stations, wish they had more than one flavor of gatorade. I think there was like 3 biofreeze stations along the way (not that I would partake during the race, that stuff tastes terrible, lol), overall a relatively flat course, good crowd participation, thanks for the can of ICE COLD Coors at mile 19.

Lots of local support, encouragement and alcoholic beverages. The pint sized Jambalaya after the race really hits the spot. Course is relatively flat with the exception of a bridge a mile in and a mile from the end (the perk is you can smell fresh baked bread on the bridge as the Merita plant is nearby). Love this race.

Very nice area outside of Shreveport, LA. Kind of disappointed to find out we couldn’t run through the prison, but i understand safety first. Morning started at about 58 degrees, I ran the 50K (two loops), very good turnout. First lap everyone was fairly together for the first 2-3 miles, then the thinning of the herd started. The elevation changes on this trail, the roots, and switchbacks all made this a pretty serious trail run. I managed to do the first loop in a little over 3hrs, but after the barbeque lunch (which was very good) and a diet coke, I realized my pacing was off. The second loop was a slog for me, even though the weather was almost perfect (just a little warm, 74-75) during the early afternoon. Ended up doing a quick walk for the second loop for fear of twisting an ankle, heard about others that broke toes. Finished slightly before dark. I would imagine that the trail becomes very hairy if it were to rain either before the race or during.

So even though this was postponed from mid Jan to start of March it started off quite chilly (43 and very breezy). Standard covid precautions done, very orderly start, great flat course, good snacks along the way, with plenty of public support for alcohol (Mimosas, bloody marys, beer, etc), a great time. THe post race jambalaya was a great touch.
