This was my 2nd time running in New Bern and it likely won't be my last. Biggest positives are the race management and the post-race celebration and food spread.
The course runs up and down a bridge and back to get started. Once you knock that out, it's smooth sailing. I PRd my first time here and had a great time on the 2nd one, even though I wasn't in great shape. The course just kind of begs you to run well.
The race director and volunteers are SUPER helpful and friendly and will make you feel right at home. The post-race spread included pizza, beers, apple fritters/muffins, etc. etc. Yummmmm.
The town is nice for walking around and there are some great places for food and drink. Overall, I full recommend!
