Oak Barrel Half Marathon

This is not a race that one runs just on a whim, and not just because it will sell out. You don't run this race on a whim because of Whiskey Hill. The first half of this course -- and, really, the day before the race -- is anticipation of the looming hill. If you have anything left when you conquer the hill (after about mile 5, you're good to go), the course rewards you by turning flat for three...

Baker's Dozen Beer Run

Once again, the organizers of the Baker's Dozen Beer Run (and I'm not one, despite the fact that I "own" this race here) did a fantastic job. The price of the race went up this year, from $20 to $25, but that's because the local government began charging for its services during the race (which is reasonable, given the 1,500 or so folks who registered for the event). The organizers offered...

Rock n Roll - St Louis

This was state number 24 (almost there). Course was hillier than I thought it would be. Temps at start were 39/40. Lots of hotels within walking distance to the start. Start was facing arch where sun was just begining to rise behind it which was an awesome site to see. Good course support. bands scarce b/w miles 3 and 8. I guess because of neighborhoods running thru. Set a PR on this race...

National Nurses Half Marathon

The National Nurses Half Marathon is in just its second year and for a “young” race they have handled all the details well. The host hotel was easy to get to, packet pick up right there with vendors and speakers. If you are a nurse and wish to get continuing education hours that is available. Buses to the start were on time, large and comfortable, each with their own bathroom! No waiting...

Rock n Roll - St Louis

Packet pick up was smooth including upgrading my corral as they had put me in a corral for 2:30 half and I had entered to run a 2:00 half. Lots of good vendors and exhibits at packet pickup. Start was well laid out with wave start by corral. Still a few people in early corrals that were walking at mile two not sure why it continues to happen. Course was well laid out with a few challenging...

Cherokee Harvest Half Marathon

The website does not mention that this is very hilly. You can register the day of. Swag was great: nice backpack with long sleeve 3/4 zipper tech shirt and a plush beanie. Cherokee Indians drumming and singing on course around mile 7. Great vegan food afterward. They had a problem with their chip timing.

Mercedes-Benz Half Marathon

The course was fairly flat with great support. Ran through some historic neighborhoods. Short sleeve technical shirt and a big shiny medal.
