    there is nothing that prevents people from cheating on this race as there are no time stamps throughout the whole thing. We watched someone skip both loops and then try to finish in front of us. this is a hilly race with a cheap race director who is known for cutting corners in his planning. So it is not a surprise to me that there were not enough time stamps to actually catch people cheating in this race. I just don’t get why people cheat.

    Packet pick went smoothly and there is plenty of parking on race day. It was very cold but there was a festive atmosphere. Course was well-marked and easy to follow. Plenty going on afterwards. Not personal best but beat my time from last year. Won first in age-group.

    Course was okay, better than W.S. race. Great after race activities and the food was top notch. Good start location which was easy to get back and forth to my car. May run again in 2016.

    Great experience for a first time runner. Will definitely participate in other Race 13.1 runs. Plenty of convenient parking, loved the atmosphere and after-race food was great! MORE

    I placed in my age group and thought the medal & prize were awesome! However, I did wish that all 5k/10k runners got something other than a shirt.

    I would definitely do this race again but probably run the half marathon distance from now on.

    I’d highly recommend this race to folks who like rolling hills. It’s a different route than the majority of races that run through Durham, so it’s nice to see some less-traveled parts of the city. There’s ample parking, cool t-shirts and medals, and awesome post-race food (catered! not just bananas!) and beer. You even get the chance to win money just for participating! I will definitely run this next year.
