The music at the start / finish area at the convention center was a great way to get you pumped. The “Pacers” that ran the course to help runners keep their pace was a great idea, and also very friendly while carrying on conversations during the run. The 13.1 course was well marked and had plenty of water stations along the route. Hearing your name called at the finish line was cool. Thank you to the organizers and local PD who helped set the course and keep it closed for runners safety. See you next year.

This was one of the most fun and well-organized races I have ever run. Registration and packet pickup were painless; the tech tee was high quality and well-designed (one I will actually wear over and over!); the course was challenging, beautiful ad fun, all at the same time; the finish line experience was special (please let the emcee know that his efforts to read every finisher's name as they crossed the line meant a lot); and the post-run nutrition was plentiful. A special shout-out to the course volunteers whose energy and encouragement helped tremendously. I don't have a bad thing to say about this race. Looking forward to next year already!
