    Overall I thought the race was well put on for a smaller race. It started in an industrial park and then took you on some of Charlotte’s greenways which are pretty well done. Most of the course feels like you are running through the trees. There are some gravel sections with really loose gravel, not well packed.

    Since it was a smaller race you could find yourself alone at some points, so some better signage was needed for some of the turns.

    Not a whole lot of crowd support, again do to the small local nature of the race.

    Swag was a shirt and a medal so nothing really outside the norm. I remember seeing something about ice towels, but those were not given out if they were on course. Also, there was beer at end of race, but not a whole lot of food.

    This was as good as I would expect a July Half to be. The start/finish was in a pleasant office park adjacent to greenways, which meant plenty of parking amid trees and grass islands – access, parking, and space to warm up was really good. There was even sort of a mini expo and food tents, the Starbucks with iced coffee and donuts was brilliant. The 6:30 (half) & 6:45 (5k & 10k) starts were early enough to hit the coolest part of the day. There were partial road closures and police support to and from the greenways, and police motorcycle sweepers for each event.
    The half course was sort of a T shape, with the second half going to the UNC Charlotte campus. The whole course was pleasant since the office park was nicely landscaped and the greenways mostly wooded. The elevation gain was 322 ft on my watch. There were 145 runners in the half, 99 in the 10k, and 91 in the 5k. Start2Finish event management handled the whole thing very well and it was fun seeing everyone on the out and back type courses. Excellent finish line with runner’s names and home towns being called out.
    The swag was a short sleeve tech shirt and a nice big medal, both with a dogwood flower theme. To me that is good swag and I was happy for the rest of the fee go towards well run events and the charity. The start temperature was 73 degrees, and probably around 83 2+ hours later; even with that and heat always slowing me down, it was so much fun to be out there running a well done event like this.
    This was the third year with 2020 cancelled because of Covid. Definitely a recommendable race and one I would not mind running again if I was in the area.

    The inaugural Run the South Charlotte half marathon was a fun race. The course follows a nicely paved running trail that is shaded for the majority of the run. Some hills and several turns keep the run interesting. There are three turnaround points which allow runners to pass the rest of the field. I enjoyed all of the encouragement offered by other runners as we passed each other. It was a small field for the first year race which meant the trail was not crowded. Nice race swag with a comfortable shirt, SiliPint cup, and large finisher medal.
