    This race is well run but low key. Don’t expect a ton of spectators, and the course on the rail trail is a bit boring. But it’s flat and fast and you might just PR or BQ.

    My first half, TR was a great start to my racing history! It was very organized, clear communication, and an easily navigable race experience for a first-timer! Course was flat and fast, some trails.

    I don’t like out and back and that is pretty much all this race is – down one trail and back; go across the street onto another trail and follow that back to the road; nice expo and nice area for traveling

    I completed this race in 2011.
    The weather was not on my side for this race; it was cold and drizzly. The race started at 7am. The course is an out and back course with a mixture of streets and trails. A portion of the race goes through the American Tobacco Trail which was used to transport Tobacco in the past. This was a very cool portion of the race. However, please note once you entered the trail there were NO Port-a-potties.
    This was a smaller race which provided a unique experience. Despite its smaller size it was a fun race.
