    This was my first half marathon after completing a few 10 milers. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience despite a challenging race course. For a race that has only been around for 2 years, the organizers have created a really fun event.

    Pre Race: Packet pick up was at the local running shop. Super friendly volunteers. My favorite part were the very nice New Balance hoodies that every half participant received.

    Race Day: I was told I needed to buy a $5 parking pass in advance only to find that the parking deck at the starting area was open and free. ??? The starting line was well placed at a brand new minor league baseball field. Cool place to take off. The course itself starts out beautiful. The first couple of miles take you through the North Augusta Greenway. The challenges come when you hit two hills around miles 5 & 6. First one is incredibly steep but over quick. The next one is about a 0.5 mile of slow ascent. Overall, it’s definitely a rolling hill course, so plan accordingly in your training. (I did not, so I was hurting afterwards).

    Crowd wise, there aren’t a lot of spectators in the first couple of miles. It’s actually pretty quiet. You then run through downtown North Augusta, SC and Augusta, GA towards the end, so you have some good cheering spots in those locations.

    Finish line was on the field at the local Minor league baseball team. That was a cool experience. All finishers received a beautifully designed medal and a free beer (you get to keep the nice glass cup too). Solid selections of free snacks and takeaways afterwards.

    If you are in the Georgia-South Carolina area and would like to train for a fall half, I’d definitely suggest this race. It’s small, but the local running groups have organized a fun community running event that will hopefully continue to grow in the next few years. Great job Fleet Feet Augusta!

    Once again, Fleet Feet put on a fantastic race. The course is flat and scenic and the swag is awesome. This year the jacket was a zip up and we got a pint glass. This race is worth doing every year.

    Fleet Feet did a great job on this race. It was cold and rainy, so having the cover of SRP Park while we waited for the start was awesome, as was having real bathrooms! The Greenway was a beautiful place for a run and the trees there kept us from getting completely soaked by the rain. The SWAG consisted of a hoodie from Fleet Feet and a glass beer mug from the Greenjackets, with the race name and logo on them. I much prefer a few nice items than a bag full of junk I will end of tossing. My only complaint… there wasn’t a lot of spectator/volunteer cheering, but that may have been hard to organize due to it being a holiday weekend. I plan to be back next year.
