    This is a great race, in just about every regard. If this isn’t your PR race then you aren’t trying hard. It’s up and down for the first few miles and then the rest of the race is downhill. And not like falling-down-the-mountain downhill. It is almost imperceptible, which is the best downhill you can have when running. The course is on a paved greenway and you have only a few road crossings. It’s pretty, but it’s not running by waterfalls, cliff edges, or spectacular views. But no complaints, really. It is a nice course. There are also amply stocked aid stations every few miles which is always a plus. For context, I finished 508 out of 1,052. Pretty average.

    The organization of the race was also great. Timely emails, easy start and finish, and the race starts (point to point) downtown, so if you want to stay at a hotel near the start line, you can. But you’ll need a ride up to Traveller’s Rest, where it starts. And Greenville is such a cute town! I grew up only an hour away and don’t remember Greenville being such a nice town, but it’s definitely worth a weekend trip. If you do this race, I would highly recommend staying at a hotel in downtown Greenville and exploring the town. And the spouse can drop you at the start line, then go back, sleep a bit longer or eat breakfast, and then wander down to the finish line to watch you finish.

    And the post-race party at the end, despite Covid, was great. This was my first time in this race – 2021 – and I think the norm is to have a more lively post-race party. And at the finish line you are in the Falls Park area of the city. Lots of bridges and benches to walk and sit on, and nearby cafes to eat at… if you are still hungry after eating the post-race meal.

    In 25+ half marathons and 25+ other races, this is easily in my top 5 races, all things considered. Highly recommend.
