    Outside of the bridge, the course was flat. I did the 12k. It was my first time in Georgetown and the race started at their downtown and it was small and nice (and cold). I thought it was well organized. The scenery was pretty. I’d do this race again.

    This race was a hidden gem to me. I live in the Charleston area but had never run it, and I’m wondering why I didn’t run it before! The hospitality and organization are what sets this race apart in my opinion! The course itself crosses two bridges, twice each for the half marathon, and winds through the streets of Georgetown, a ‘sleepy’ little Southern town along SC’s coast. The section from miles 8-11 is difficult for the lack of scenery, but otherwise it’s a nice course. But back to the hospitality: although there aren’t that many locals cheering you on through the majority of the course, at the finish there is lots of support. And the best part for me was when the last runner came down the home stretch, all of the volunteers were notified, and they cheered him through the finish as if he were the winner! As a late October race, the weather can be fabulous, or still hot and muggy. It was a little muggy when I ran it, but I was ready as a local. If you haven’t been to Georgetown, they’ve rebuilt the boardwalk and local businesses since the fire that ravaged the town several years ago. It’s a great little town to enjoy!

    I ran this race again in 2015. It was rescheduled from Oct. 10 to Nov. 14 due to flooding back in October, but the race organizers did their best to accommodate runners. They offered to transfer registrations to others or a 50% off discount for 2016 for those who could not run. I was able to run the race, so I did. It is a fairly small race, but has great course support with about 6 total water stops and one with gels/gu.

    The race course is the most difficult half marathon on the SC coast. There are 3 bridges and you run over each bridge twice. The bridge at mile 11 is no joke and got me, that was my slowest mile.

    The organizers are great to work with and very responsive on Facebook (and nice in real life). They care a lot about their community, charities, and putting on a quality event in a small town. Georgetown does not have very many road races, so I’m glad they bring a really good one to an area that needs more health and fitness oriented events. That is one reason I keep supporting their race and repeating it.

    The swag was pretty good this year. Everyone got a tech shirt or a choice of a long-sleeved cotton shirt. You also got a bandana with the course map and a place where you could write your finish time. The bibs were nice and had your name on them, which is always a nice touch. Every runner got a finisher’s medal, whether you did the 5K, 12K, or half marathon, and the age group and overall winners got additional medals. The medals are very nice and high-quality. There is an after party with a band and also one free beer per runner.

    This is also a good half marathon to run as a training run if you are running a hilly full marathon.

    I ran the Bridge 2 Bridge half marathon in 2012 and am running it again in 2015. It is a small local race but the town rallies around it and supports the runners. The course had plenty of volunteers and adequate water as well as gels at Mile 7. It is not an easy course, so don’t count on a PR here, and since it is a small race, the course does not have a bunch of spectators. The organizers are very active on social media, responding to runners’ questions and comments, and you can tell they really want people to run their race and put a lot of effort into it.

    The finisher’s medal is one of the nicer ones I’ve received, especially from a small race. The race has also gone to tech shirts in recent years. My favorite part of the swag was a 13.1 oval sticker with the race name on it.
