I really enjoyed this little half in lake country! It was a pretty small race - I think 500-600 runners. It was nice not having to dodge people for the first couple of miles. Also, parking was a breeze. The start of the race was at a church so we parked minutes from the starting line (a bonus when you're running late!) Another benefit to the small size and church home base was access to the restrooms before and after the race. Running around Lac La Belle was beautiful. The aid stations had water and gatorade and Hammer gels at mile 7 or 8. It was a very humid day and some spectators had sprinklers running in their yards. It was very refreshing to run through those! With the exception of the hill at mile 12, it wasn't too hilly of a course, which surprised me for that area. The top 3 finishers of each age group received trophies, which you don't see very often so that was fun. The post race food was awesome. We stayed to snack for awhile! I'd recommend this race if you're ever in the area and want to squeeze in a scenic/fun/affordable half!
