The folks at Rock n’ Roll marathons put on a great production. The finisher medal is beautiful, they continue to use the wicking blue t-shirt with the logo for the specific location, but that’s not why I run.

The course starts you off on Constitution Avenue, with epic views of the Washington monument, glimpse of the White House and back side of the Lincoln Memorial… then the gentle rolling through Georgetown. I could not find a course elevation map… the course transitions to the parkway which is hilly. There is a 8% grade hill at 6.0-6.5 mile marker from the parkway exit up transitioning runners back into the neighborhoods.

Overall great fan support and volunteer support, plenty of water, energy drinks… There were several bands on the course… at mile marker 5, they had a DJ… BUT you could not hear the music because one of people on stage couldn’t help themselves in screaming support, woooo hoooing!!! It was beyond annoying! Take the mic from that lady! I appreciate support but yelling a volume 11 is a bit much…

This race is very much worth your while if you want to run a half marathon completely within the District of Columbia! I would run this again.

Cool temps, flat course! Great volunteer support and nice swag. It was a beautiful course. Starts downtown and you’ll get a good look at some of the local sites. Most of the course is in the park, gorgeous scenery and flat bridges to run back to downtown.

Great after race festivities. There was a rock band of middle and high schoolers and they were amazing!

The race director put on a great race, thoughtful planning, and consideration for COVID 19 precautions. They had the biggest turnout for their event yet. The Upper Platte basin is gorgeous! You’ll run right through Monument National Park… up a steep graded hill for a few miles, I might add! The course is split 7 ish miles on paved road, the rest is on coarse dirt and crushed stone trails. You’ll be better off to run trail rather than road shoes if you’re looking to run fast.

What a giving community! The race is free; they only ask that you stay local and help merchants by shopping, eating within Millinocket. It snowed the day prior and running up the mountain in the snow made me feeling like I was back home running on the Florida beaches… There is epic beauty as you reach the top of the logging road… majestic view of Mount Katahdin! The community offered great refreshments at the various mile markers and the backside of the race was all down hill… You’ll have to purchase your own finisher medal… but it’s part of giving back to this small community.

This is one of the most challenging half's in America due to the grade of the climbs... but the views of the Pacific and La Jolla Cove are worth it. MORE
