    Overall this was a nice race weekend. I did the Double G Challenge (5K Saturday and half marathon on Sunday). Both had the nice feel of a small local race. Course support was great, and I never felt lost, which as a back of the pack runner, was really nice. The race website isn’t the best, but the team is really quick to respond to any questions you have via email. My only complaint would be that there weren’t very many bathroom options pre-race for either the 5K or half marathon. There were only 3 portos near the start line for the 5K and 5 portos for the half start line. The course overall was very hilly. Running through the park was nice. Volunteers and cops along the course were also nice and all friendly. I did this race to check off GA from my half in every state list.

    It’s a city race, but with modest numbers. This means it has the advantage of being able to choose from a variety of hotels nearby (for out of towners) and use transit to get around, without having to compete with 20,000 people to find your place in the flow of the race. I’m not one of those folks who thrives on huge crowds, so this suited me well. I was pleasantly surprised by an off-road recreation trail section about three quarters of the way through that was very pretty and a nice change of scenery. Ending within Piedmont Park was also quite lovely (despite the dormancy of the time of year).

    If you are a run-walk-run person, this is the best race for you. The pacers were awesome, great swag, and an excellent post-race party. There is quite a bit of elevation gain though- so be prepared for that.

    Plenty of water/aid stops. Course had some unmarked potholes. Race results posted day of the race. Nice medal and long sleeve technical shirt. MORE
