This Half marathon is extremely well organized and supported by the local sports council and community. I came from out of town to run. I am slightly familiar with the downtown Augusta area since my husband has been working there and I’ve made several weekend visits to the area. So, I was not expecting such a good experience. I live in a much larger metropolitan area and there were several surprises at this race that I have not experienced at my local races. The packet pick up was easy to get to and fast in and out vendors were good. My first surprise was receiving my bib with my first name on it! Race morning was easy peasy with plenty of close parking and start/finish area was easy to find. Plenty of porto-pots and some indoor bathrooms as well. The race had several pace groups as well and that was also a pleasant surprise my first half that had pacers. Started right on time. The course does not offer much to look at as most of it is through residential areas. The second half has a little more scenery and there is a stretch along a river that is pretty. The blue mile was probably the best surprise. I knew it was coming and looked forward to it the whole race but it was my first time seeing one and it was just awe inspiring. The crowd support at that point was huge and really boosted my spirits at just the right time. Overall there were ample aid stations (approximately every two miles) and great crowd support at the aid stations. There were a few spectators throughout the course but most were clustered around the aid stations also there were porto-potties at each aid station which is nice. The race volunteers were friendly, helpful and numerous. There is a fairly long hill that was challenging from miles 4.5-7 also it tricks you as you think you’re at the top recover for a few minutes to get to another climb! The finish line and area were adequately supplied with orange slices, cookies, mini muffins, granola bars and water. The medal was nice and so is the long sleeved race shirt. They said something about an after party but it was too cold, and I didn’t stick around. All I wanted was to get to my hot shower! I would definitely do this race again.

I ran the double pump which is the 5k followed by the 10K so 3 total trips over the Bridge. They claim it is the toughest bridge in the South. I was skeptical before and I still am. It was definitely a challenge. I believe the climb up and around the on ramps to the bridge is steeper than the Cooper River Bridge (in Charleston, SC) but I think the overall climb at Cooper River is longer. But it was a great view and definitely worth it. The double pump medal is massive!! I was so surprised when I saw it at the expo the pictures online did it no justice. I loved that! Everything was very organized. I rolled in to pick up my packet right at 5pm and was able to get it within 5 minutes. There were many vendors and they were giving “samples” of Michelob. The starting line trolleys were perfect and I was able to walk from our hotel to the trolley pick up point in about 10 minutes. Took the Trolley to the starting line for the 5K and there were plenty of porta-potties. The starting line had runners and walkers separated so that was good. The only thing I would improve on was better signage to show where the 10K start line was. After finishing the 5K we had to walk to the 10K Start line which I knew from studying the course maps was only a block or so away. I just didn’t know which way it was and about everyone I asked wasn’t sure either. So an arrow sign at the double pump exit from the 5K would have been really helpful. Overall I loved this race and had such a good time exploring Savannah. I would definitely plan to make this a weekend trip if you come to do the race.

The course started and ended at Flour field (local baseball stadium) and wound through many of the older neighborhoods in downtown Greenville. There were many turns to keep you on your toes, and lots of the neighborhood folks were out cheering us on which was great! Since Greenville is in the foothills there were a lot of hills most long and gradual but it made for a really challenging course. Aid stations were great, but I think one was missing between mile 7-12. Finishing on Flour field was really neat, until I realized I had to climb up the stadium steps to get off the field and to the food!

The idea is simple drink a beer run two miles and repeat! You can compete as an 8 mile relay team or you can compete individually and run all 8 miles yourself. You are NOT required to drink beer, but if you do you get a 2 minute deduction off your time. Also, you have the option of drinking a carbonated beverage instead of beer to qualify for the time deduction. The course was a trail around a farm and had several hills and the trail was rough. Lots of roots, stumps, rocks, and ruts to dodge. It was my first trail experience so I’m not sure how good a judge I am of that aspect. There was a nice pond and some horses to look at but I honestly spent most of the time looking at the ground making sure I didn’t trip over something. The race was a smaller event and well organized. I love that they give out running socks instead of t-shirts! I have plenty of t-shirts! Since it was a “beerlay” the swag included a coozie too. It was a fun time overall and I would definitely do it again!
