    I’ve run the Harrisburg Half several years. In 2015 it was moved from a fall date to summer. We were lucky to have a mild temperature day. It has since been moved back to fall. I think there was a lot of (negative) feedback about the summer date.
    This is a small race. You can pick up your packet before race day or same day. Parking is easy, as the race starts on City Island and there is ample parking. They have nice brushed, soft cotton t-shirts. No other frills though and no expo.
    The course is flat and fast. You could plan on a PR for this course. It is run along the riverfront, through the city and a short portion on a crushed gravel trail. There are lots of places for family to see runners, although the overall crowd support is moderate (at best).
    Post race food is good, typical fare of drinks, bagels, cookies, fruit, coffee, etc. Medals are nice, not fancy, but not cheap, generic medals either.
    If you like a basic, well run race, a flat course and easy logistics, this is a race to consider.
