Course is quite hilly, but it is very beautiful. Had plenty of water stops along the way (every 2 miles). Would have been nice for a few more portapotties at each water stop, but nice race overall.
I enjoyed the course this year. Much better than last. Several suggestions from a runners perspective .. There were so many people this year! Maybe start in waves by estimated run times next year. I also didn't like that I had to wait an hour to see the posted run times.
The water stations rocked! The community support for this event is amazing! See y'all next year!
Fantastic course. You do feel the hills over the course from about mile 4-5 on, as opposed to last year where the hills were more steep but stacked up in the last three miles. Great volunteers, great cheering, great organization. Really pretty scenery, challenging, and fun. Really cool to run through the stadium.
Beautiful course! Agree that will need to start in waves as this race becomes even more popular (which it will!). Course support and sideline support was OUTSTANDING! See you next year!
Great and challenging course and fun atmosphere. Well-organized except for the way-too-small runner refuel area after the finish line. Otherwise, a must-run if you are in the area.
Good course - running through the zoo road was a little tight and strange and the hill there was hard - - all else went well - - music on the course, plenty of water, even got an orange wedge somewhere - - really dramatic finish with lots of folks cheering on the Sanford Bridge.
It was a wonderful and forgiving course for North Georgia. Many stretches of flat or downhill. Hills are a part of Georgia. Cramped finish refuel and reunite area was the only hassle. Perfectly organized water stops. Great neighborhood support and volunteers.
Overall good race, I like the course saw some great neighborhoods in Athens. It was hilly and at times a little challenging. There was a shortage of restrooms along the route. The medal was a little cheesy, however pretty cool to run in through Sanford stadium.
Much improved after last year! The course truly captured all the unique beauty that Athens has to offer all while remaining challenging, but not too terribly grueling! Keep up the great work!
