    Race is in Callaway Gardens resort. Pick up numbers at Beach entrance. There are real restrooms at the start. Mostly asphalt with some cement areas and a few wooden bridges. Course us scenic with several lakes and wooded areas. Plenty of water stops and some portapots along the course. Miles are marked and there are some pacers. Standard refreshments afterwards and pizza. Awards are in 5 year groupings – your age is what it will be December 31st. Short sleeved shirt and nice medal. Awards are plaques. Free photos and results are posted a few days after race.

    This was the most beautiful course I’ve ever done. The whole course runs through the gardens, so you are in the woods or by the lakes the entire time. Could not get enough of the scenery! The volunteers were great! There were snacks at every stop, which is not typical! The hills ate me alive though! I was not prepared for that at all! I do train on flat ground so maybe that’s why but oh man those hills! The course is two half marathon loops around and there were hills like 12 of the 13 miles and it was pretty brutal the second time around. I would highly recommend this race for how scenic it is but just do some hill training before 😉
