    I was looking for a race to check Alabama off and picked this one. Overall it was just ok. Packet pick up was easy but nothing in terms of swag. Was confused as a half marathon running you received a regular short sleeve tshirt though they were selling long sleeve tech shirts afterwards. There was no other swag. The course was on some pretty beat up roads that were hard in your feet and back. There is a giant hill around mile 10. You did get to finish on a baseball field which was cool. The course does not go by the civil rights institute or 16th street Baptist church which I was surprised being so iconic. This is a course you do 2 laps of so the parts you like and don’t like you get to see again.
    There was no much in terms of post race celebration or food-just some cheezits, cookies and a tap of beer.

    Packet pick up was pretty sloppy but other than that this was a great experience. There’s a good chance we’ll do this race again
