    The virtual half marathon was excellent. The experience was fine for me because the course was exciting. There were many runners. The most unique aspect about the race was that it was part of a series.

    To the point first – Great event and great location. Awesome run production company. Ampt Running. I ran another of their events this summer and that one as well as this one was awesome.

    Multiple distances offered at this event – 5k, 10k, and half marathon. I ran the half.

    The venue for this event is among the best I have experienced. Toyota Music Factory. Parking was good, a parking garage right next to the pre/post race area and it was free Not sure if or when it filled up as I always arrive early.

    Pre race pickup was organized but they did run out of large half marathon shirts so I went without one. They do tell you to do early pickup so while I want to say this was a negative I guess it was my own fault. If I had gotten on it was a quarter zip long sleeve for half runners. This venue had nice indoor restrooms as well as a few Porto Johns Several vendors were set up pre and post race handing out samples.

    There was a band that played while I was out running or so I am told.

    The course was good. Mostly flat but there were a few noticeable inclines, nothing serious but they were there despite them saying it was a flat course. Most of the course was on paved park trails. Water stops offered both water and sports drink and seemed to be well placed on the course. Run pacers were provided for the half distance. I ran with one for most of the distance until I died but for the ten miles I kept up, they were a little ahead of the advertised pace but were very friendly. My performance was horrible. Legs were shot before I started.

    Finish line was good. Get your medal, bottle of water, and a small towel. Nice medal.

    Post race was great. Same vendors onsite as pre race. If you wanted you could get a breakfast taco with your bib tag. Post race awards were nice. Trophies for three deep in all age groups. There were outdoor couches around a stage and the weather was great.

    Overall a great event and I would for sure run this one as well as any of the Ampt Running events again in the future
