    I have run this half marathon every year since 2015 and I love it every time. The course is beautiful with rolling hills., and is well marked. There’s a fun, holiday vibe and lots of runners dress in adorable Christmas garb. Volunteers are friendly, and aid stations are more than sufficient. The hot cocoa at around mile 10 was a nice touch. The swag is good, we got a nice long sleeved shirt and a sweet medal. Afterparty at the Atkinson County Club is great, plenty of good food and beverages. Always one of my favorites!

    This was the first half marathon I ever ran, back in 2015, and I will always love it. Yes, there are rolling hills. There is also beautiful scenery, first rate volunteers, and wonderful support stations. Swag is always great for this race…In past years I’ve gotten gloves and headband, arm sleeves, a gym bag and a really nice tech shirt. The medal is always unique and adorable. Very nice spread for runners after the race….soup, cocoa, bagels, bananas, etc. love this race and can’t wait to run it again this year!
