Nilesh Tharval's thoughts:

This was my second Oak city run, all my office collogues run this race some of my office Top management team come down to run this race from Germany.
it was good experience running with office colleagues.
Arrived on time not earlier as the day light saving change happen on same day. Organizers sent lot of reminders about it.
race started ontime near bell tower, start line is crowded as marathon, half marathon and 10K starts are same time. after 1 mile you can see less crowd and most of the slow runner you left behind.
initial half mile you running down hill, and then up hill.
you will pass through Raleigh downtown. I like Raleigh downtown section. towards finish line it it uphill its testing you abilities.
I was able to finish my 10k 52:10 min. not bad last year it was 64:30 min.
I highly recommend this race.
for 2019 I registered for half marathon however I will miss this race because I will be running TCS NYC marathon on same day.
