    This is a great race. One of my favorites. The course is beautiful, the organization is great, the parking is easy, the post-race food and festival are the best I’ve seen in 50+ races, and there is just so much good about this race and almost nothing bad.

    For starters, this is a medium size race that is growing larger each year, it seems. But because it takes over an outlet mall (is it an outlet mall? Not sure, but it feels like one), races have all the large parking lots to park in, so easy parking is always nice. Although it is in a shopping area the race begins before things open and this Bridge Street Town Centre does NOT feel like your typical outlet mall area. It is very quaint, with cobblestone streets and waterways and cute bridges and park benches. It’s quite nice, actually. And the post-race festival takes place in this area. This post-race festival is second to none. All you can eat food, drink, I mean… this is venders coming out, offering up their food, for free. And, on top of that, you have the standard packaged snacks as well. For the post-race alone this race is worth running.

    But even if the race didn’t have a good post-race, the course alone makes the race worth running. It’s a great course, one of my favorite. You start in the shopping area but pretty quickly you are out in the countryside, running along hills and hollows, past old churches and farms. Quite a scenic route. There are some hills but I’d probably not call this a particularly hilly course. It’s a quick’ish course but probably not PR quick. You’ll definitely enjoy it though.

    Highly recommend this race. Don’t put it on your life’s bucket list or anything, but it’s worth traveling a few hours to run. Easy parking, great course, great post-race… this is in my top 3 favorite races. I really can’t think of anything that would make this a better race… except perhaps transport the post-race party and easy parking to one of the National Park races, or to a flat beach race.

    This is a great, relatively flat course with the exception of a few small inclines. Start is in front of Bridge Street Shopping Centre with a loop around the perimeter and your off through a lovely residential area, where some are out to cheer you on. HPD is out in full force at every cross section. Aides stations fully stocked with Gu, Stinger brand, I believe, water, gator and powerade…which is nice because I train with powerade and a lot of races only have Gatorade (That is just a personal preference). I do wish there was one more aide station towards the end. I break my half’s in quarters so mentally, I prepare for a fourth aide station to help with that final push… But again, this is me and in no way should take away from the wonder stations this race has! The finish is in the middle of the centre and full of spectators! Finisher’s food has many selections and good sizes for a quick refuel after 13+ miles. The surrounding, smaller restaurants are open at the finish of the race which is really convenient. I would recommend this race for all levels of runners! Great for starting out and to get a PR!
