    Race starts and ends at Fitness Form with indoor restrooms and showers. Miles marked on the street. Flat race with lots of turns, plenty of water/gatorade stops. Nice long sleeve technical shirt and medal. Results and photos posted quickly.

    Since Run Like a Nut is on the same day as the Florence Pecan Festival, one would think it would be a great race to bring runners into town for a tune-up before one of the upcoming marathons. However, this race consistently misses the mark. I participated in the 10K in 2010 and 2011, and the half marathon in 2012.

    Each year, the half marathon course is short by about .3. The first year I ran it, I did not realize this and thought I’d set a big PR. Imagine my disappointment to find out my “half marathon” wasn’t really a half marathon. Not to mention the first timers who thought they’d completed the distance.

    The course has a lot of turns without proper signage or volunteers, so some runners have accidentally cut parts of it or gotten lost. Several years, the organizers have run out of finisher’s medals because race day registrations were allowed and I have had friends who did not receive medals or received very poor quality/old medals from previous years. The tech shirt offered was the same color for each year from 2010-2012.

    I personally would not recommend this race. If you live in Florence and need an aided long run on that day, that would be the only reason this race is a good option.
