    This was a well-organized event with a clearly marked course and sufficient support throughout. The first mile was extremely congested and my pace was a full minute slower than the rest of the race for me. In the second half of the race, the course ran on the shoulder of an open road for about a mile.

    I loved what a “logical” course it was, basically just running the length of the lake. Super flat and fast. When I ran it it was all gravel, which I loved, but I think it’s now paved, putting a little more pounding on the legs but leading no doubt to faster times. Great production and support as always from Evergreen Trail Runs.

    This flat and fast half marathon course is a great choice for someone trying their first half. I did this race because I only live 5 minutes away, so it was super convenient. However, I also do most of my weekday runs along this trail, so I can’t exactly rave about the scenery. Along the way, you’ll get glimpses of Sammamish lake and some of the really nice homes along the lakefront, but that is about all. As with all Evergreen Trail Runs, the race is extremely well managed and supported. Fellow runners are generally laid back and friendly at these events. You really can’t go wrong if you live close by and are looking to do a convenient first half marathon.
