I absolutely loved this race! For this race, you run down Rockville Pike, from the Shady Grove Metro to the White Flint Metro. Everyone was super nice at this race, and there were some great spectators along the route. There is no tree coverage during the race, so make sure you wear ample sunblock. I wore a hat and sunglasses just to be on the safe side!
For this race, you'll need to make sure you bring your SmartTrip with you (or put it on the bag check van that will meet you at the finish line), since it's a one-way route. The t-shirt you receive for this race is made of performance material (as opposed to cotton), and instead of receiving a medal, we received a mason jar mug, which was a first for me!
The food and the expo at the finish line were great, though a little crowded obviously. This race is very well run, thanks to the Montgomery County Road Runners. It was a great start to my race calendar!
