    It is a very well-organized race. Little registration problem due to deferral from pandemic year but got resolved quickly. The start and finish was smooth. Long line for the porta potty before the start though.

    The course is overall flat except few underpass. No view, except the Houston skyline maybe. Out and back course is little boring and mostly no shade at all. The medal is HUGE and very beautiful.

    -This race, which comes every fall, is a great way to test out your fitness for fall racing. If you’re brave enough to sweat through training in the summer, it’s also a great motivation to make it through the Houston heat.
    -Free group training runs months prior to the race are a great option for first-time racers or those who enjoy running with a community!
    -Day-of logistics are great: bike valet, ample space to warm up / hang out before the race, and well-indicated signage take the logistical stress out of race day.
    -Don’t be nervous about the Allen Parkway Hills at the end of the half–you’re sure to have plenty of fans there on the parkway, cheering you on!
    -Be prepared, if it’s a sunny day, to finish racing into the sunrise. Sunglasses are helpful!
    -The post-race celebration is great–just get in line quickly for pancakes & beer or you may be waiting a while 🙂

    Well run and organized race. Post race food and drink and band in Sam Houston Park made for a nice post race experience. Course is a two mile loop of SW Downtown Houston and a nice 11 mile out and back of Allen parkway/memorial. The speaker system setup between miles 3 and 8 made carrying your own music not needed.
