    The half marathon was organized and well run. This was my first half so I don’t have much to compare to regarding aid stations, etc. There were enough for my needs. Only downside for me was parts of the trail were uneven and it kind of annoyed my left hip but other than that I had a great time.

    The run starts in Jim Thorpe train yard and is on a packed gravel rail trail so wear appropriate shoes. Water stops were plentiful, (at least every 2 miles) and they offered u-can carb/energy goo pouches near the turn around. The course is super flat and follows the river and RR tracks and crosses the Lehigh river so while I wouldn’t say its super scenic, you still have plenty to look at while your running. Post race was average, but this years medal was the best one yet. Very unique metal/wood combo w/ a layered look. Jim Thorpe is also a great little town to walk around post race with lots of little shops and good places to eat and/or drink.
