Jes 's thoughts:

Never again.
I walked this "walking classic" with my mom. She was so excited to finish her first half marathon.
The jacket looked very cheaply made.
The course scenery was great. There was no day of race packet pickup and no willingness to provide any assistance for out of towners, they really wanted you to book a room so they could get some money back if you used their code.
There seemed to be enough water stations and the course was decently marked. It did not match the course map however.
The race was more focused to the 10k. After we split, fans became barren.
We finished and all of the post-race swag (a 31 cross body bag and a scarf) were gone. They had been handed out to non runners. When we asked questions we were told that they can not control who gets the runners finishing gifts. Which is a lie because in the other 17 half marathons I've completed its never been an issue.

I was so happy to be with my mom for her first half. But besides spending the time with her this race was awful.
For spending over $100 to participate in this half marathon, you definitely don't get your money's worth.
