Jenna Kinzie's thoughts:

I registered for this race but was "injured" so I opted to cheer.

I still partook in the expo and race day (as a cheerleader) so I still wanted to share how it went from a little different perspective! I have run this race (2017) also.

The race communication is great - you get emails with updates and important information ahead of time. The expo was the Friday and Saturday before the race on Sunday at the Dallas Convention Center. I drove and had no problems getting downtown or parking. It was a gorgeous day so I enjoyed the walk to the convention center from the parking lot, which wasn't too far, but wear your comfy shoes.

The expo is just what you'd expect from a Rock n Roll race - very well organized, large, and lots of helpful volunteers. I picked up my bib and shirt with no problem and very little wait. Then you enter a large area of vendors. The Brooks/RnR are is first with anything you could ever possibly want with the Rock n Roll logo on it. I usually put my blinders on at this point! Then there are various vendors with samples and things for sale. Everyone is having fun and taking pictures and it's a good time. You could be in and out if you want, or you could spend hours there.

Race day went smoothly. I took an Uber downtown (I recommend Uber-ing or taking DART if possible due to the large amount of people - if you drive allow for extra time and bring cash for parking just in case). I went to the Majestic (around mile 3 of the half marathon course) and cheered with a group of friends. It was great.

I definitely recommend this race. It's a BIG race. Well done, well organized, a lot of people. It's fun to be there and it's fun to cheer! If you don't mind a few hills and the (high) possibility of a hot, humid day, I say go for it!
