    This race was a great time of year in Florida. Coming from colder climates it was a nice break, and was even a bit warm. Very flat course with lots of turns. Shady for the most part.

    The most challenging aspect was the run-walk pace groups. I’m all for run-walk if that’s your jam, but the pace group would take up the entire road and then stop right in front of you. Same for other running groups doing run-walk.

    Nice flat course, perfect temperature, the other runners were great and a lot of fun. The neighborhoods did a fantastic job decorating their street for it.... a lot of fun. MORE

    This race while it is for a good cause was not a favorite. I thought there would be some running along the beach but the only water I saw was in between 2 houses. Water stops were ok but they didn’t have Gatorade at every stop. Also some stops had water on one side and Gatorade on the other which lead to crossing over in front of people. Crowd cheering was good

    The 26.2 with Donna, as the race is more informally called is a fast flat course running through 3 beach communities (Ponte Vedra, Atlantic, and Neptune Beach). The communities really come together to make this such a fun race experience, with spectators cheering you all the way to the finish line. Some people even decorate their homes and lawns specially for the event, which gives us runners something cool to look at as we run by. The race is well organized and has plenty of aid stations, water stations, and Porto-potties at every mile. If you are looking to make a PR this is a great course to attempt it on; the course is pretty flat and the weather is usually cool(sometimes windy with a sea breeze) since the race is held in the beginning of February along the beach. Once crossing the finish line they’ll hand you a “beachy” themed medal which is always my favorite part of racing…getting the bling!! Some of my favorite medals I’ve ever received were given to me after running the 26.2 with Donna races! It’s a beautiful course with a special cause to help cure breast cancer through medical research and a wonderful experience if you choose to run it, which I hope some of you do! You won’t regret it!
