    plenty of cheer squads to keep you going, aid stations have sports drinks and water and some have gels. first part of race is on a rail trail and a gradual downhill second half brings you through two parks and around a lake then you finish at a high intensity commons area in the city. great fun look forward to doing it again

    The course was changed this year (2016) from 3 hills to 1 hill. The first 7 miles were flat and along a nice river. Then were the 5 miles uphill–which was more gradual than I expected. There were a few short steep parts but it ended up evening out to rolling hills after you got past the steepness. There was A LOT of shade which was very nice since it is summer. The post-race was amazing–lots of food, beer, and music. We received 2 finisher’s items: a water bottle for the half and a “plaque”–no medal. If you wanted a race shirt, you had to buy it, which I didn’t appreciate but I bought one anyway. BUT you did get a free 13.1 Ithaca magnet and sticker with your bib, so that was cool! I would 100% run this again. It was a very well-organized fun race where runners are really appreciated.
