    It seemed like a new procedure/technique was being used this year bib pick up and there appeared to be some technical difficulties. There was one line for all 5k, 10k, and half marathon runners to pick up their bibs race day morning (there wasn’t any early bib pick information available online). I arrived 40 minutes early to find a very long line. Bib numbers were being assigned to runners as the bibs were picked up. I was able to receive my bib 5 minutes prior to the start of the race. My performance was great! I’ve ran this race for the past few years and know when to anticipate the hills. I finished 1st for my age group and 4th overall! The awards ceremony was delayed due to runners being assigned to the wrong race while picking up their bibs. The 10k awards were announced 1 1/2 hours after I finished. Kuddos to the DJ/MC for keeping the participants entertained and informed while the corrections were being made. I was disappointed to find out on race day that the old half marathon route was being utilized even though the website had the 2017 race route listed when I had registered.

    I love participating in local races – this happens to be one of them. I was disappointed to receive a notice just days before the race that the half marathon route had been changed. The previous route was mostly all uphill, which made the last half of the race running mostly all downhill ideal. However, this year the route was changed to running the 10k (plus a little extra) twice. There is very challenging hill at the start of the race and running that twice was not fun. I am happy to support local races, although I won’t be running the half marathon again if the route is still the 10k twice.

    In the past the course for the 1/2 marathon has been out & back – first half being mostly all uphill (I love getting the hills over with in the beginning). However, this year an email was sent out 6 days before the race to notify runners of the “updated” route which was basically the 10k route (plus a little extra) twice. This meant running the hills twice and the hills are a bit challenging. Also the course ended up not being a full half marathon – I crossed the finish line at 12.96 miles. I ended up getting my third best time for a half marathon and my friend placed second for her age group. I was pleased with our performance.
