In 2021 there were numerous COVID Restrictions imposed. In spite of this, the race was very well run. I ran the two man Marathon relay. The exchange zone was not well marked and was a bit difficult to find. Other than that well run. They had parking well organized with good bus services and the swag was great. The city support was great, would recommend. My time was poor, but that was more a reflection of poor preparation. The course itself is not difficult.

The race was run under strict COVID restrictions. Runners were spaced about, checked for temperature.. A bus took runners up the course, and capacity was strictly limited. Runners started five seconds apart. The course itself is mostly downhill, giving on an opportunity for a good time. You will feel it in your quads the next day or two. Scenery was great, and race was very well run. Loved it, and will look for other Revel races in future.

I entered this race just looking to stay in condition. I was not well prepared, but relatively local winter race was hard to pass up. Race this year was limited to a low number of participants. The start was staggered, based on expected finish time. Due to this, there was plenty of racing room, never really bothered by crowding. There were times that I was racing alone, with no other runner in sight. Water stations were well spaced and staff was friendly and helpful. Swag was fine, nothing to get excited about. Entry fee was very reasonable. I will compete again next year, and hopefully do better. One should be able to get a good time in this race.

Course runs through local roads for first 4 miles and then shift to a trail. The trail is flat, and easy running. Fall leaves had mostly fallen, but still nice scenic run. If you are looking for a fast course, this is one to consider.

This is a great fall race. It runs down an abandoned portion of the PA Turnpike. A significant portion is in tunnels, which require lighting. Most of the course is actually a bit rough. The pavement shows signs of many years of neglect, but the tunnels are still pristine. Fun experience!

This course has a reputation of being tough and it is. Normally I can run, between 1:50 and 2:00. I have run twice and can’t come close to breaking two hours. Between the heat (Memorial Day Weekend) and the elevation changes you will be challenged. Support for the race is great. I will be back again to finally break my barrier. Wish they held it during a cooler time of year, otherwise a great race to try.

Race is a gentle downhill course, which enables some pretty fast times. Race is over a beautiful well maintained trail. Temperature was cool and scenery was great. Possibly a bit past peak foliage but still very nice. Swag is nothing special, but fine. It is a point to point race, they provide bus service back to start. If in you are, in the area it is well worth it!

Race is mostly along Lake Shore Drive. My favorite race, good crowd support along the way. Scenery is awesome along the lake. Swag is good, course offers potential for a good time, no real hills at all.

This course takes you through Pittsburgh, you cross three bridges, and all along the course there is good crowd support. The course is not as “hilly” as one might expect, but not flat either. Support and organization is very good.
