See my review under 10k. 5k not as hilly. There is one bigger hill but the course is fair with a reciprocal downhill to offset the uphill. Ran this 1.5 hours before the 10k. A lot of the course repeats for the 10k. Great crowd support and organization by Runner’s World and Altra.

A very well organized event. One of the better races I’ve done where I drive and get a shuttle to the start line. Expo was only okay and rather small. Great location in historic Bethlehem PA with lots of scenic views along course. The 10k is HILLY and from what I understand the longer the distance the more hills there are to conquer. Crowd support was awesome and course well marked and lots of water/bathroom opportunities on the course. Plenty of variety in the races and combination thereof that you can run. While it was not a PR I was proud of accomplishing both 5k and 10k races back to back otherwise known as the five and dime. I would do it again if the opportunity arose!

Overall a great race. The conditions were tough with rain the whole 10 miles but the crowd support was awesome even with all the wet weather. I will agree with others though, they need to figure out the finish line area. A total bottleneck. I had to push another runner who stopped right in front of me just across the finish line to finish myself. This is a very popular crowded race. 40k + runners on my race day. Lots of people stop in the middle of the course from running to walking which is frustrating, especially if you are trying to PR but are not fast enough to be up front with the elite corals. If you know all this going in though you will have an AWESOME time. Truly a great race in a great city.

The 8k is a nice flat course. You run down the Main Street to turn around and come back on the boardwalk. After party is AWESOME! Hosted by Yuengling and the huge tent is heated. Day I ran was cold but at least I finished before the snow started to fly. The 1/2 and full marathons were not so lucky. But that’s March on the Ocean. Swag was great too!
