This was an extremely well run race, from the confetti at the start all the way to the finish line. The half marathon course was a good mix of city, neighborhood, and green space (portion by the river). The beginning was hilly, but it seemed fairly flat for a good portion of the course. There were a lot of unofficial drink stops as well. I never thought l would do a fireball shotski during a race, but here we are! You are only on Route 66 for a short stretch, but you do pass by the Neon Sign Park. It was extremely cold at the start when I ran this in 2022 (in the 20s), but warmed up by the time I finished. If I was local, this would be an annual event for me.

I ran the half marathon in 2022. The course was shortened to approximately 12.6 miles, and the race has yet to inform participants/make an official announcement, outside of adding comments to those asking on social media posts.

The staging area for the half marathon was dark and did not have any hydration or an adequate amount of restrooms. The race started late, but those in further back corrals had no idea what was going on as the sound system was not set up in a manner that allowed us to hear anything.

There were adequate water stations on the course, but they did not have enough volunteers. I am the back of the pack and still had to wait at some stations for hydration. As mentioned above, the course was measured short starting at mile marker 9. The official results on race day indicated 13.1 miles, but now Athlink results have been updated to 12.6.

It is unacceptable that a race does not inform their participants that the course was shortened. I have yet to receive an email or any communication from Lifetime regarding this matter. I understand that things happen outside of their control, particularly with construction in the city. This was an issue they claim to have been aware of prior to the race via social media comments, but did not communicate prior to or after the event. Very unprofessional. I will not be running this, or any other Lifetime sponsored events.

The one positive is the swag. The medals are comically large, and the shirts were made of decent quality tech material.

This race was extremely well run, with lots of communication and information provided via email and race Facebook group. This night race was such a unique experience, especially at the beginning of the race when you see nothing but a sea of runners with various lights on them. It was a rather tough/hilly course, which really caught up with me on the second loop. Was almost a personal worst time for me, but it was really peaceful to be in the park at night with a clear sky full of stars. The medals in 2022 were handmade from a local ceramics shop, which I enjoyed. If you are a 50 states half or marathoner, look no further for your WV race.
