Lachine Half Marathon

Nice flat course along the St Lawrence River, partly on-street and partly on paved bike trail. Good volunteer and spectator support as well as law enforcement and plentiful water stops. Course consists of two loops of approximately five miles each and a final, separate loop of about three miles. Of course, since it's Canada everything is measured in KM so 21 KM is the total distance. Pre-race...

Area 13.1

This was my first half at night and I was very excited to run this race. Packet oick up the day before at a local running store was well organized and easy in and out with staff to answer questions about parking race day event sight and other tips. The course was an out an back loop that including a part on a paved/gravel trail through the Roswell Riverfront Park. It was very muggy and...

Big Wild Life Runs Half Marathon

The organizers put on a well-executed event. From packet pickup through to the finish, everything The course starts and finishes in downtown Anchorage. In between, it's run on a paved bike/walking trail out and back. The elevation profile looks like a W with the first mile downhill and consequently the last mile uphill. The finisher's medal, t-shirt and post-race food were all great.

San Francisco Half Marathon

I ran the first half marathon as I wanted to run the Golden Gate Bridge and through the Presidio. There were a couple of challenging, but doable hills. It was a very early start at 5:30 a.m. which means in most years I bet the views are obstructed by fog. Perfect running weather in July (not too warm). Beautiful course! There were a couple of issues with this race that I think are attributed...

Where's The Dam Trail 1/2 Marathon

Pretty straightforward course - out and back on the same towpath, which is essentially a hard-packed dirt road, and almost perfectly flat. Only about 100 runners, and the day was warm with near 100% humidity. Because it was advertised as a trail race, the organizers suggested bringing your own hydration since there would be few water stops. This proved correct, and I'm glad I took my Camelbak...

Inaugural race. By far, hardest race I have ever attempted. I walked 3-5 miles and still finished in top 30%. 2000 ft overall elevation gain was brutal. Footing on rocks made "running" impossible at times. Race started 20 min late because of shuttle bus issues. Turned out there was ample parking at race start and shuttle wasn't as critical as they suggested. GPS doesn't work, so plan ahead -...
