Willa 's thoughts:

This race is a great beginner half marathon, as it has very little elevation gain and is technically quite a straightforward route on well- paved roads. I ran this race for the first time back in 2012 while pregnant, and decided to give it another go.

This race is up there for cost (especially if you are used to trail races) but you get quite a bit of swag for your money. The shirts are really nice and great quality, the medals are pretty and always have a unique shape, and the expo is really good with lots of samples and goodies galore.

The course itself begins with a straight shot then into a downhill at a nice, knee- friendly grade. Then you hit the flats and you are flat for about 15 km out and back- so if you like flat, fast courses- this is your race! There are a few bands and vollie stations along the way to energize and fuel you- which is great. Being able to see the fast runners on their way back is pretty cool as well- lots of high fives and motivation to be had!

The last few clicks to the finish hold a nice uphill (yup the one you came down at the start)- so if you are a fan of uphills like me, you will love this section. Then it is a straight shot to the finish, where there are usually cheerleaders, lots of people high five-ing and clapping, and some great finish line food and drinks.

Very beginner friendly, fast, and fun! All in all a great event!
