    This race is flat and easy, I would highly recommend it. Sadly it was cold, windy, and rainy when I ran it but despite that I really enjoyed it. I’d love to run it again when the weather is more cooperative! The packet pickup was also really unique, at Alcoa brewery/distillery, which was a fun touch.

    The website and online info for the race are great. The pre-race bib pickup process was limited in scope but easy to find and people were friendly. Free race photos are offered after the race which is refreshing. The race had a small field (about 160) which meant I ran the majority of this event by myself. The live race tracking with RaceJoy was a joke and didn’t work well and made my wife more concerned that something happened to me because of the irregularity of the infrequent race updates. The race goes through regions with poor GPS connectivity with likely affected the utility of the app. There was adequate water and volunteer support for the race and the scenery is beautiful along the coast. The portions of the race that were run along the shoulder of the roadway were less glamorous. The elevation profile crushed my legs and made me realize I really needed to focus on loosing weight (I ran this at 192lbs). The impact 2nd major incline at mile 18 (see pic) on my remaining energy reserves made the last 6 miles miserable for me (but the younger, lighter runners that were all passing me seemed to tolerate it well). The funny thing is that the website describes the course as relatively flat. This is a small race with scenic portions that are very enjoyable but don’t underestimate the hills if you are not ready for them. My review of this race is biased by my major league BONK of the last 6 miles.
