    Never got to experience the full experience of this race yet because of covid. Ran the course without anyone on it. Course is a city run ending next to the river to help you push as fast as the flow.

    This is my 3rd time doing this event- I did it the inaugural year (this was my first ever half marathon), the 2nd year and then this year.

    Its a great local race! Here are the things that I enjoyed about the race:
    *The communication: emails, instagram, fb posts, and more. They are always communicating with you!
    *Parking- they give you options, they are easy, walk able and convenient
    *Finishing on the track: its fun and exciting and a great way to end a race
    *The crowd support- for such a small race, its amazing to see how the town gets all into it, I love it!
    *Running in Scranton; i love this city and its a cool way to see it
    *It’s a relatively easy course with some hills, but its an enjoyable course (for the most part)
    *Lots of water stops, great volunteers
    *The swag- the medals are always great and I love the fleece blankets at the end. I also like the extra swag you can purchase- this was super important to me when I was doing my first half. I have a lot of bling!
    *The after party and free beer at some of the local bars! A cool way to hang out and celebrate your victory!

    Some things that could be improved (and knowing this race is new, I think they will work out the kinks)
    *the trail portion- it gets too crowded and congested
    *the t-shirt sizing runs a little small
    *the expo; its a little lack luster, but the Scranton Running company is my favorite booth
