    This race is so perfectly timed with CIM and its worth signing up for. It is always on Daylight savings time too. The last two years I have done this run I have driven up from the South Bay at 4am (when it really feels like 5am).

    They use all the same pacers and aid stations as CIM. I did find I was ultimately faster at CIM though, so whichever pacer you follow may not be the same one you follow come race day.

    The scenery is nice, the course is pretty much flat and fast. Free pizza and beer at the end too!

    The first 13.1 miles is the same course as the American River Parkway Half Marathon. It is not quite as flat as I remember from reviewing the American River Parkway Half Marathon, but it wasn’t too bad even for me (I live in a very flat city, so I never do hills.) The scenery was pretty nice.

    At the 13.1 mile mark, the half marathoners go through their finish line, while the 20 milers keep on going.

    There was a little bit more climbing on the last 6.9 miles, but it wasn’t too bad either. The scenery wasn’t as good as on the first 13.1 miles.

    The weather was nice — it started in the low 50s. For slow runners like me, it was fairly hot at the end.

    The course was easy with just a rolling elevation to keep it interesting, the race was well organized and the after the race was great with pizza and beer to wind down and massage if you wanted. The weather was perfect, @ 60 degrees and lite winds.
