Ran the 2019 Petersburg half marathon. The race started and finished in downtown Petersburg at Union Train Station. The course was very hilly with the first half net uphill and the 2nd half net downhill; even though the 2nd half was net downhill, there were plenty of rolling hills to keep you honest with your pace. Sprinkled around the course were Civil War reenactors and there were also a few staged at the start / finish line. Nice technical running shirts were given to all participants and the finishers medals were impressive. Plenty of American history to see in the area, making this a very enjoyable trip.

This was my first time in Tuscaloosa and I had great time. The Tuscaloosa Half was an enjoyable race and with the exception of one downhill near the start and one uphill around mile 5 it was a mostly flat course. The course ran parallel to the Riverwalk along the Black Warrior River before heading to the Alabama campus enroute to the finish at Government Plaza in downtown Tuscaloosa. There was plenty of free parking adjacent to the start line at Government Plaza, so early morning race logistics were very easy. Post race food was very good (bbq pork sliders and thin crust pizza) and beer was available as well. Weather in Tuscaloosa this time of year is very pleasant and with flowers blooming, the area was pretty scenic.

Very well organized event. Really enjoyed the course, which had some rolling hills in the first and last 2 miles, but otherwise flat once we got to the trail. Plenty of aid stations and good crowd support. A nice finishing area with a good post race party. As an added nice touch, Boston Marathon qualifiers received a “Boston Qualifier” shirt. All runners received a tech running shirt and an impressive finisher medal. All in all, a great race and one I highly recommend.

Ran the 2018 Rehoboth Beach half marathon for my 100th lifetime half. Cold and clear morning with a slight breeze. Nice course that was mostly flat and included some city streets and ~5-6 miles through a park before heading back to the race finish. The post race party was amazing… the best I’ve experienced in all my races.

Ran the 2018 Gilbert Half Marathon. Nice flat course that included some city streets and park areas. The race finished alongside the Gilbert Days parade which was very cool!!

Very unique race that was held at night and run entirely on the Las Vegas strip. As always for RnR races, the race was very well organized. The course was very flat, but with so many runners, the first mile or so was pretty congested. The post race food was average-. With the race run on the strip, there was plenty of fan support along the majority of the course.

The course was very nice, but had a number of hills that made it pretty challenging. Really enjoyed running in the Princeton area and the race was extremely well organized. Plenty of parking near the the start/finish line made logistics very easy. Although one of the tougher halfs I’ve run (and I’ve run over 90), I’ll definitely consider repeating this one in the future.

First off, weather was nice and cool for a half marathon in August. Scenery was amazing and varied. Buses used to transport us to the start were very comfortable. Course was challenging with a nice long uphill during the first half of the race and a nice flat finish. Very nice age group awards and even though it wasn’t a huge field, the age groups were every 5 years. Post race food was good and we were given a coupon for a free huckleberry milkshake…it was AWESOME!!
