- 3 miles/5K, 13.1 miles/Half Marathon
- Road Race
- Event Website
I signed up for this race last weekend and unfortunately, they maxed out their "Nauti Challenge" so I couldn't get the extra medal for doing both the 5k and half.
Overall, it was a fun race in downtown Norfolk and great to see all over the city. It was VERY cold that day, I went in with no expectations of what the course was like. It was short and sweet going through down town and seeing the city. Some of the streets ending up being cobblestone causing people to clog up the sidewalk to avoid it.
The expo was very small with not a lot going on, a few vendors but nothing stands out.
The post-race festivities were great, since it was so cold after the 5k I didn't stay long but I did stay a while the next day after the half marathon and it was a little warmer. It is all right there in the waterside park at the finish. Your start is right by the finish so your checked bags are right there, there are changing tents, beer tents, soup tents and live music.
