    Everyone was a first timer on this new race, hillier than expected. The first half-ish was running on surrounding roads and through neighborhoods, the second half was essentially running around the campus. Finishing on the 50 yard line of the stadium was a very nice touch, great refreshments and beer. Good race, may do again if I am nearby.

    Running across the 50 yard line in this incredible stadium was one of the coolest running experiences I have ever had. I am no pro but I’ve run in 3 different countries and that finish was by far the best! The route was through the campus and gorgeous scenery. The people along the route and related to the production were wonderful. It was my first time in AL and I loved it. I highly recommend this run fest to everyone!!!

    I live in Auburn, so I know how hilly it is, but sometimes you forget until you’re running. This race was so well organized and the route was great, even though it was challenging. Finishing on the 50 was a great experience and they made the entire thing so easy. Packet pickup was a breeze and the swag/medal is so nice. Only thing I would change is to have Aubie at the finish 🙂

    Ran the 2022 War Eagle half marathon. The course started and finished on Auburn’s campus. I expected the course to be hilly having run around the campus, but wasn’t prepared for the hills on the first 6 miles which seemed to be endless. The 2nd half was on and around the Auburn campus. Ran past “Fraternity row”, ran a lap at the Track and Field venue and then finished on the 50 yd line of Jordan-Hare stadium. Although it was definitely challenging course, it was a well organized event and well worth the pain and suffering, lol. The post race party outside the stadium was nice and it helped that we had perfect weather for the race. All in all a great event and one I highly recommend!

    This was a great race. It is hilly but manageable. The roughest hills were in the first half. There were great aid stations…everywhere!!
    The setup on the football field was great too. Created an awesome atmosphere for the finish.
    My only complaint is the post-race food. By the time I finished, there was nothing but hot dogs and nachos, which just made me want to vomit after running that far. The post-race party looked like a lot of fun, but I had to leave to get something decent to eat. If you want people to hang out and listen to the band and enjoy a beverage, you will need better food in the future.

    I’m always hesitant to run an inaugural event. This one did not disappoint! Well organized, plenty of aid stations and port-a-potties, fun atmosphere and great after party! Swag was great, too! Too many hills for my personal liking, but not an overly difficult half marathon course. I would definitely run this again.
