    This race is flat, shaded, and an out and back. The little Miami River is a nice view. I will participate in this race again. My wife said parking was kind of tricky.

    Second time around and much better experience this year. Very few cyclists, and the pacer for 1:50 was the best pacer ever. He spent the entire race explaining what he was doing and why, coaching the entire time. Wish I could have him everywhere. This course can be tricky as it is an out and back, slightly downhill out and slightly uphill back. Feels great the first half but if you take it too fast the last 4 miles can eat you alive. Swag was great, and the competition great also.

    I liked it-mostly. My first time having a pacer and he did a great job-all of the volunteers did. They say the course is flat. I’m newer, running less than a year, but running this out and back course felt like it was mostly slightly downhill the first half and naturally, slightly mostly uphill on the way back. So the average would make one think it’s flat. Scenery is mostly trees on both sides with some peeks at the river but the advantage is mostly shade. With that said there was little room for spectators. I also was not fond of the fact that the race portion of the course was not closed to cyclers during the race and some of them came up from behind extremely quickly with little time to react. This was distracting and made me nervous as they came from both directions quite often so we had to be constantly aware and moving aside being squeezed into the nearby runners.
    Great people and competition. The shirts and medals were both very nice. I would love to do it again next year but may not if I’m going to be dodging bikes the entire way. I mean c’mon. I think the cyclists can live for 4 hours without that portion of the trail. It made it so hard to enjoy the peaceful setting.

    Super flat and fast course. The trees along the trail provide some shade. I’ve run this course many times and always done well. I have been run this race 7 months pregnant. 2019 is by far my best half marathon performance. There will not be a ton of crowd support but it’s a course go out and run hard on. Packet pickup is usually the day before at a local running store or the morning of.

    This is one of my favorite races because it was my first 10K and then my first Half Marathon. The course is mostly along the Little Miami Bike Trail, which is nice for a summer run because it’s mostly shaded. Not a very interesting course (a quick loop through downtown, then 12 miles on the bike trail), but there are well-staffed aid stations every couple of miles and a nice after-run gathering in the park.

    The event is well run, with great volunteers. Highly recommended for an easy summer Half Marathon or 10K.
