    This race is held on a historic plantation nearby Charleston and round its pond. Watch your footing on the bush hogged portions of the course. Race medal was antebellum autumn themed; very nice!!

    This was a local race for me. It was on Middleton Plantation in Charleston, SC. It was a trail run on very rugged terrain. Because of Hurricane Matthew downed trees caused them to reroute the course to 3 loops of a 4.5 track (got boring). Done with friends as a training run so it was not all out effort. Water stops about ever 2 miles. Great shirt & medal. Halloween themed race, and have a halloween costume contest. I want to do it again next year with the full course back in play.

    Great location for a trail race. Well-organized. The water station was plentiful and sufficient. They even mixed the Gatorade well, not too sweet unlike other races I have done. MORE

    Mostly trail and packed gravel; flat; some repeat portions; well organized with exception of parking issues; for a first time effort, it went well and I suspect they will work out the bugs. Would definitely do it again. For a first time half marathoner like my wife, it was great.

    Race 13.1 came to Charleston and blew other local trail races right out of the water- or I guess, blew them off the trail. They produced a quality event with a big-time feel right here in Charleston.

    Race 13.1 Charleston was one of the more difficult half marathons I’ve run since it was a trail course, but they did an excellent job of marking the troublesome spots and having volunteers at each turn, junction, or crossing. As far as I know, no one got lost, which is a first out of the local trail races I’ve run here in town. The course had mile markers and motivational quotes, which were a big help in the last 2 miles.

    Race 13.1 also strives to host events that appeal to runners of all abilities. This race had far more pace groups than others I’ve run, and they make sure that even the runners in the back feel special. They do not run out of medals or have strict time cutoffs. If you are in the front of the pack, they have very nice age group medals as well. Both the finisher’s medal and age group medal are some of the nicer ones I’ve received.

    If you like to travel and run, you can purchase a pass to run more than one race at a discount. You also get extra medals for completing certain milestone numbers of Race 13.1 half marathons (extra medal when you complete 3 or 7 in a year).

    This was my first experience with the Race 13.1 brand, but it surely won’t be my last. I look forward to this year’s Charleston race as well as some in other cities.
