    I ran this race in 2019 & was excited to run again in 2020, which ended up being deferred to 2021. Not a big deal- but when 2021 arrived, I received no communication from the event. I had to track down their Facebook to find out that it was once again deferred or virtual. I signed up to do he virtual, but never received the info on when I would receive my bag but when I reached out again they sent me a tracking number. I ran the race, and the bag arrived the next day which I was excited about… until I saw that instead of a half marathon medal, everyone got the same thing.the entire bag was the same for everyone. My race registration however was much higher. When I voiced this to the organizers, they ignored me. What a bummer! I waited that long to get something I could have saved so much on- and they can’t bother to explain. Do not recommend.

    Well organized and beautiful course. Just wish people would follow rules and race staff enforced. Announcement of NO strollers, found at least two people running with them. MORE

    I loved, loved, loved this race. In the middle of mile 9, when I normally question my sanity for starting the run in the first place, I instead found myself deciding to sign up for the next year.

    The course is flat and fast, starting with a sunrise across the placid bay filled with paddle boarders and followed by several miles of gorgeous views of crashing waves. This was a reasonably small race (<2000 runners) so crowding was not an issue. Course support was plentiful and well-manned. I most appreciated the icy cold towel in the back third of the race. The shirt and medal were good quality and worth collecting. Can't wait for next year's race!

    It’s a flat course, very fast. Great scenery and great location. Temp was perfect and the event was a lot of fun. The beer garden was very cool and they plenty of facilities so you didn’t have to wait in long lines. It was not large but I thought that added to my satisfaction with the event. I’d definitely recommend it and I’ll be there next year!
