The first half is mostly industrial areas, but from mile 16+ it’s got nice scenery. Plenty of water and restroom stops. Very well organized. It was just a hot day and they save a lot of elevation for the last 5 miles.

This was one of my favorite races to date. Course is a simple out and back loop with a great aid/water/food station at the beginning/turn. It’s not competitive, just a group of folks working through the week. I only did this one day, but I’m making plans to do a full week in the coming years. Great race series!

This was my 7th time running St. Jude, having done 1 marathon and now 6 halfs. This race is always well organized with a great Expo, lots of swag. The atmosphere is great, with a rocking staged start and then support throughout the course. Lots of groups along the course providing encouragement and entertainment. The highlight is always running through the St. Jude campus and seeing all the patients who come out to cheer you on (weather permitting). It is December in the Mid-South, so you never know what the weather is going to be. I’ve run sleeveless in sunshine and 70 degree weather and I’ve run in four layers and a raincoat in 40 degree weather. You just never know!

The course itself is great, flat and fast. It’s a small race with just a few dozen running the half. No age group awards and, oddly, you get your medal in the swag bag before you even start the race. There’s something satisfying about getting a medal after running and there’s really not a lot of fanfare at the end. The mile markers were all wrong, with the Mile 13 marker at around 12.25 miles in. There were only a couple of water stations on the course, so you’d be advised to run with a pack.
