    This is about half marathon 26 of my half marathons in every state and this was by far the worst-organized. I would not even pin the blame on COVID (I have run other races during COVID including some of my favorites). There were scarce water stations throughout the course, about every 3-4 miles; there was no first aid or even paper towels (I bloodied up my hand and knee pretty badly and had to run 7.5 miles with the wound exposed — at the finish line they had nothing either); they promised us race pajama pants which I thought was cool but they never showed up. And beyond all that, the course itself was bad, on the side of the road wrestling with traffic and really not scenic, & for a race that calls itself Sunset Beach there is very, very little of the beach to be seen (maybe a little bit of sand between some houses). There were bugs that were incessantly biting prior to the race as well. The medal is pretty cool, not gonna lie – clearly they have the majority of their organization team in the medal department. Ultimately if you are going to do this race, the one positive I will say is – amazing coffee nearby. Otherwise, there are better races in the state!

    It was incredibly rainy when I ran this race, however despite the rain, the race directors were still able to pull off a smooth, fun, and safe race for everyone!
    The course was pretty easy and fun with a few hilly portions when running across the bridge but overall it was fast and flat! It would have been even more beautiful on a sunny day!
    The Bling for this race will probably never be beat! The medal is as big as my face and it’s beautiful and sparkly! I would run the race just for the medal and T-shirt!

    Well organized. Weather conditions made for a cooler run but the rain at times was a bit much. The BAM swag is as advertised. Cannot wait to finish the other two. Enjoyed the enthusiasm of the volunteers and the organizers. Very impressed with the volunteers being there considering the weather. I would recommend this race and will look at running it again.
