Course is fairly hilly, nothing that will decimate you, but paired with the heat that was in 2023, made the course very difficult for me. Last year i managed a 2:07, this year post-achilles tear surgery i was lucky to get a 3:25 (earlier this year i have been back to 2:45ish times). Not enough crowd support along route, and just too hot.

Board a bus to be taken 13.1 miles outside of town, near the interstate, see a beautiful sunrise, then like ~8 miles of perfectly straight rolling highway miles until civilization. Nice run through town, around a park and finish on the 50 yard line (on the practice field, as there were technical issues), nice swag, part of a three year medal series, so will come back next year and the year after that. Very nice participants ~600 or so i think. They do offer a 5k as well

The elevation chart didn’t look that bad, but somehow the combination of packed gravel trails and the humidity really killed me. The last third of the race that looked like a downhill, just did not feel like a downhill. Maybe if the temps were in the 60’s it may have helped. I had lots of water and gatorade on course, and good snacks at finish line.

Course was nice and flat, just small rises of less than 20 ft., Very scenic, through downtown to Churchill Downs and by lots of stadiums, homes, etc. Lots of local crowd support. Distance by Garmin was 13.41 miles, marathoners had 26.7, just a lot too far. Then after finish the walk back to start was way too far and poorly organized IMHO.

Fairly cold and windy, as the start is right by the beachhead. The start is a small loop and up a hill, after that it is through downtown Niantic and then under the bridge and back on the boardwalk. Other than the first 25% it is all flat. Very nice local race. Good snacks.

Nice flat course, criss-crossing the downtown area, small hills, nice run, road has a few cracks in it. Great snacks, donuts, granola bars, water, etc. THis town has a large retirement community, last year around 80 participants, this year ~125, so hopefully it will continue to grow. Great local race.

Very well produced race in a very small town. Many small BnB to stay in town before and after the race. Course was rolling hills, two laps through and RV park and a gargantuan hill (maybe a 1/2 mile long with a 10% incline), did I mention it was HOT. Anyways a great town and a great crowd, I will have to run this at least one more time!

Very well put on race supporting veterans, most of the volunteers at aid stations were veterans. The course was great, I would say rolling hills along the trail. The temperature that day was about 90 degrees with crazy high humidity. Running throught the wooded trail was even more humid. Very nice refreshments after the race, bages, fruit, water (both cold and not). Placed 3rd in my age category. Will definitely repeat, hopefully less humid next year!

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!

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.

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.

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 course, except for the mile or so brick streets at the beginning. Relatively flat, pretty well organized, friendly crowd. Nice medals and swag. Great for locals, don’t know if I would consider it as a destination run.

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.

A little hilly, finishes right downtown, great crowd support and pleasant weather. Runs along the waterfront of Lake Dora for a bit. Nice Christmas themed race. MORE
