This race was absolutely fabulous. Super smooth packet pickup, constant communication of important details, and every volunteer was so happy to be there! My favorite part was the pacers though. Not only does their presence make it easier to make your goal, but their constant encouragement and positivity made my experience one to remember. Thank you, BDR!

This was my first half marathon, so I don't have much to compare it to. But according to many conversations with experienced runners, this was a sub-par experience.

Sign up and packet pickup: Simple and as described, but the only SWAG received was a t-shirt and granola bar. Womp womp.
Aid stations: Water at aid stations was warm, and they ran out of water at the last two aid stations. No Gatorade or iced sponges were offered.
Volunteers: Many of the volunteers were uninterested teenagers, not paying attention to runners needing direction, and many of them were missing on the second loop.
Finish Line: No one read the "special statement" they requested during registration. Water received at the finish line was warm. The blow-up palm trees/finish line itself was taken down prior to the 3-hour mark, even though it was previously explained that there was no time limit on this race.
Post-race: There was one very small tent for shade, and no fans in sight. Also, no food to be found.

It's been 5 days since the race and I have not seen any of the free pictures they promised or been contacted and asked for a review.
