Well-organized half-marathon. Race day bib pickup was a breeze. Small number of runners meant that it was easy to hit my target pace early on without much weaving. The race is a bit hilly though since runners cross many bridges. Aid every 2 miles.
Event was very fun and well organized. Aid stations every 2 miles with water, gel, and bathrooms was nice. Highway running was a little rough on the knees but that's to be expected and we knew the course in advance (so can't really complain). Overall it was fun and I plan on doing it again next year.
It was a great event! Not too big to be overwhelmed. It was the first time I have participated in a Half Marathon and really enjoyed the experience. I will continue to do it every year and will also participate in other Half Marathon as well as some 10K's and 15K's
This year's course was way better then running around the sewer lakes last year. One thing still needed is more portable potties. I actually saw a lady run behind a vehicle to squat.
Well organized for a smallish half that grew a lot from last year. Course improved from last year, but still not particularly scenic for running along water
lots of construction and cones. Plenty of aid and support. Award 'ceremony' could use some worktook forever and seemed like there were some errors.
My first time running the heroes half and I really enjoyed it. Well-organized and with plenty of aid stations. Course was nice and flat with only a couple of small hills. There were a couple of locations where runners crossed paths with the lead runner, but due to the number of participants is wasn't a big deal. If the race grows a lot, they may need to reconsider this. I will definitely plan on running this race again. Great cause (St. Jude) and great race.
This was my first time participating in this event. I thought it was very well organized, loved the volunteers as they were all rockstars. The course was nice (except for the stinky part passing by the treatment plant).
I would certainly run this one again...and I got a PR yesterday which was nice!
Well organized event with lots of volunteers. I have been running since 1983, have done a marathon, lots of 10k's and 5k's but this was my 1st half and I loved it. What a great group of volunteers with so much support along the way. Definitely a do over.
It was my first time participating in this event and I was real impressed. Great organization of everything, from parking to getting the results posted in a timely manner, and beautiful course. As a military member it was nice to be a part of a race for such a good cause. Definitely on next years race calendar again.
