    This was an awesome race and worth traveling for. The course is beautiful and challenging. So challenging that I had my personal worst time and need to do it again to conquer the course! I definitely didn’t expect the weather to be as hot and humid as it was or that I would have to climb another hill to get to the food after a tough finish.

    Packet pickup could use some help – the lines were not clearly marked and I think I stood in a line I didn’t even need to stand in. People coming in after the opening time were not sure where they were supposed to go and ended up cutting into the lines. For as many participants and vendors, packet pickup should really be open all day and not just 4-8.

    All that said, the support on the course was phenomenal. The whole town comes out to cheer the runners, provide snacks, and encouragement. On top of that, the folks who put out their sprinklers were a Godsend!

    Thanks, Kim! Beach to Beacon is definitely one of those iconic races I'd love to run, if only it weren't so far from California. Then again, that's what vacations are for... :) And ironically enough, sometimes the most memorable races are the personal worsts, I've definitely learned that the hard way 😬. Appreciate your thoughtful review, and hope you get another crack at this one soon!
