This was the 2nd Half for this race series. Best series around. well supported and nice bling for finishers. The course is meh, but if you need to knock one out, then this is for you. I ran hard and smart and finished with me best time in a while and best since knee surgery.

Well organized and small race. Liked that it started on a NASCAR track for the first mile. Kinda fun. How many times do you get to do that. Course is flat and in some places pretty. Need more portapotties on the course. Had to stop in a coffee house but the owner was nice. Great bling and loved the Monster theme stocking hat too.

It was ok. Some volunteers couldn’t answer some basic questions, but hey, volunteers right. Gotta have ’em. Pace teams not well organized. Course was very good. A steady rain actually made things better. Warning, there is a metal grated bridge on going onto Rock Island. Can be tricky footing.

Great weather for the race so spectators came out too. It’s a very hilly race. But I pace the 2:30 Half so it was enjoyable. Bling nice. But the roads have always been a mess with potholes and gravel in places. Jackson can’t seem to shake that reputation. But I’ll be back to pace next year on Feb. 29. New date. so maybe even better weather.

Nice flat course. First part was very pretty and scenic, then went through some neighborhoods that have seen better days before ending in a nice park. A point to point race. Great, chilly weather. Great race support and nice bling.

It’s part of the Memphis Road Race series which is an excellent series throughout the summer. The halves are the last two in the series. It’s run along a hiway just a tad north of Memphis. Ugly, but it’s a race just get done and count it. Cold, rainy conditions didn’t help. But it was #50 of my journey to 100 half marathons.

IMHO BIH is the best race I’ve ever run. The Amish community know how to throw a gr8 race. Awesome beautiful course, rolling hills and gr8 crowd support. Nice handmade horseshoe bling. Organization was tops. Weather was a factor too. Cools temps, overcast. Gr8 pre and post parties too. I highly recommend.

is the best way to describe the race. Smaller ’cause of the heavy downpour of rain. I’ve run the course in different races: hilly but very forgiving at the end. The payoff is a flat, quick course in the 2nd half. Bling is an interesting riverboat with a moving wheel. Good organization too.

just the way I dig my races. The wx was unusually cold for the AJM. It’s a small race & can use more volunteers at check-in. Course monitors nearly froze & were in their cars at some turns. But course support was good. Very hilly and the wind added to the challenge. It was a confidence builder for sure.

I’m so familiar with this course I could probably run it with my eyes close. It is a rolling hills course & it’ll bite you late if you don’t plan out your run. Depending on the wx, the crowds are good, but if it’s chilly, very few. Organizers are top notch too. Nice swag. Good for a PR.

Don’t trail run much & I know why. Tough course, ‘specially on a freezing day and right after the holidays. I entered to keep my running honest. But it’s a small production & organizers tell you that. No frills, just get out & run. The aid station is awesome, PB&J, cookies, fuel for trail runners. I will run more trials cause I have a score to settle with this one next year!

not a fan of this race. Yeah, I know it’s for a great cause but it’s gotten too big and I fear the organizers have forgotten the runners. Too many races at once. Half runners ran into the back end of the 5K walkers. Finish line is crowded & confusing. Good crowds though. I’ve run it before, but may take a break from it this coming year. They used to have a relay which was fun, but eliminated it. Too bad.

It’s a small race, with a small hometown feel. The wx was chilly & rainy & since I was running another half the following day I took it easy. Ran a comfortable pace & stopped and talked with the locals. I’m sure it’s pretty when the sun is out. The fall colors were late too. Good course support, but you do run on a very busy state hiway for a good part of the race.
