    The last quarter mile of the race leads into the Gilbert Parade. It was my first time running this half and I didn’t expect the WHOLE town to come out to this shing-ding. The Gilbert Half has the most electrifying finish. The crowd gave me an extra boost of energy to finish with gusto. This race is very, very organized and runners are supported with enthusiasm from the first to the last mile. The starting line and finish are in two different locations. And they have buses loading runners back to their cars at the starting point and it was a smooth process. It’s definitely a must-do. The expo was a bit crowded but full of fun things to check out.

    Easy course; however, the race has 3:30 time limit. Faster runners enjoy finishing along side the Gilbert Days Parade Route in process. Race walkers (like me) finish along with street sweepers and clean up crews with a few onlooking crowd cheers. Recommend for anyone looking for easy course.

    Ran the 2018 Gilbert Half Marathon. Nice flat course that included some city streets and park areas. The race finished alongside the Gilbert Days parade which was very cool!! The race was well organized and the finishers medal was impressive. My first race experience in Arizona was very enjoyable and the weather was absolutely perfect.

    The best part of this race was the finish. We ran through the Riparian Preserve and along the canal for the first 5+ miles. But then we emerged from the canal and turned south onto Gilbert Rd right into downtown and along side the parade! How fun is that? Spectators cheered us on, the marching band, horses! Really Fab! Extra fun for me as I was able to pull off 1st in age.

    Decided to run this race at the last minute, since it practically goes through my backyard. It’s a small race with a ‘home town’ feel. The highlight of the race was the last 3/4 mile. You make a turn from the canal path onto Gilbert Road, and you are IN the Gilbert Days Parade! You run alongside floats and bands, with people lining the streets on both sides. Very cool – and very motivating at the end of the race!
