    I’ve done this half marathon twice and have been very pleased with it both times. The course is well supported and has a variety of scenery. The only downside is part of it is on a limestone trail and it rained heavily before this year so my ankles were not happy the next day due to running on a mushy surface. Without the rain though it’s awesome to have a change in scenery like that! It can also be VERY hot due but just be prepared for that. The medals are hand crafted ceramic and very unique! The age group awards are hand crafted ceramic bowls and cups – very cool! There is free beer afterwards and a variety of food options. I’ve done this race twice and would definitely do it again in the future!

    Not a bad small race but the humidity was a killer. Organization was fine. Medals are nice ceramic medallions. Shirts are appropriate for the price. All in all, if it had been less humid it would have been a decent day.

    This race provided me with a new personal best in the half marathon. I thought it was pretty flat, with 1 hill bit it wasnt too bad. I enjoyed the trail part of the run due to not being on the pavement. After the race, free beer, pretzel bagel(was the best), breakfast burritos, and pastries.
