    Great run. Nice to be away from traffic. Great race support and busses to and from parking we’re plentiful. Swag was nice and after run food was not horrible. MORE

    I thoroughly enjoy running for charities and participating in new races in interesting, unique locations. An opportunity arose when we found out about the Inaugural Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation Half-Marathon. The charity aspect was that the race was benefiting the historic, 150 year old lighthouse. The event was going to take place at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station with the course meandering through a nature reserve, runways and launch pads. There were some organizational glitches which was to be expected with an inaugural event. There was certainly a shortage of information and some of it was confusing. We were told many times in no uncertain terms that we were “going to be disqualified” for a variety of offense, like for not being at the right place at the right hour – sharp! Unfortunately, as my husband and I found ourselves on the road leading to the entrance of the base, there was a huge traffic jam. We did not know, if we were going to make it on time, but we decided to just go with the flow and see what happens. What happened was that we finally got into the premises and despite the very long line of people waiting to get on the bus, that part went smoothly and efficiently. There was no way however that the race was going to start at 7:00 sharp. It started at 07:15. I know that since this is a military facility, there are many rules and restrictions on what and who can go there. Hence, some of the confusion. As for the runners, only US citizens can participate. The course itself was lovely with fascinating history. Someone made the effort to put up signs with information about the different sites of interest that we encountered along the way. For example, there were two dome-like structures and the sign said that in one of them were the remains of space shuttle Challenger. The nature was beautiful, with lots of untouched green areas, canals and vistas of the ocean. Since the course is flat with a smooth asphalt surface, I was hoping to do a personal best and break a half-marathon jinx that I have been experiencing. Unfortunately, that was not meant to be because of the weather. The heat was absolutely oppressive with no shade and despite a strong motivation and drive, I ended up spinning my wheels for a large portion of the race. Still, it was a memorable event and if it is organized again next year, I will be happy to participate.
