A fellow beginner runner asked me if I would like to run this race, and since I survived the GRTM half-marathon, I said, sure, why not! Friends of mine who ran the old 20K here warned me ahead of time about the hills, 29th St in particular, so I prepped here in Chas. on some of the CDR course. The Ogden half was one of the toughest challenges I have faced in life (and that includes childbirth and a brain tumor!), but I met that beast, ran those hills, & beat my first half marathon’s time by 10 minutes! The community support was amazing with a lot of prep work & water stations. There were some areas that were not clearly marked, and that was disconcerting, but overall, this was an amazing adventure!!!

This course is great for first time half and full marathon runners. I ran the half and it was all flat through a beautiful wooded area along the Greenbrier River. When I ran it, however, we had remnants of Hurricane Ian and there was a steady rainpour and it’s always little chilly in the WV mountains anyway, so be prepared for inclement weather. There is hardly any elevation gain, it was mostly gravel, but the path was clear of debris and roots. Only issue was that there were not that many water stations. Highly recommend this race for beginner marathoners and nature lovers! I’ve already signed up for this year’s race!
