    I was told this race was flatish. I have never had my calves as sore afterwards and I’ve done Amelia Earhart and Garmin half. This is one of (if not the only) opportunity to do a 15k in the area. The course is a 5k out and back, which you do three times (twice for the 10k, which is also available, or once for the 5k). There is one flat section at the turnaround that’s maybe 300 meters of flat the rest is going up or down these rolling hills. It’s not called the Spring Slightly Cool Saunter, so prepare to sweat. A lot. Thankfully they have cold water and dried mango at the turn around that was very helpful for keeping blood sugar up, but if you’re a glutton for punishment like me and are wearing extra weight, be prepared with twice the salt/sugar/liquid that you’d normally take on a 10k because you’ll need it on this 15. The crew was great and the energy at the race was amazing. We all knew it was about to suck since a pre-storm front and moved in and veered off just getting close enough to make it muggier. None of the people I talked with that morning were entertaining the thought of a PR and honestly by the end of it I was missing autumn/spring half marathons, but without reservation I’ll be back there next year and I highly recommend it to anybody looking to increase their distance or get some good hill work in on these constant rolling ones
