I have done Rock CF 4 times, and i just love this little half. It comes at a perfect time to run a tune up race before Boston or Spring marathon. Race starts and ends at a mid school where you can check your bag in the gymnasium. Also what is great at this race you can wait inside the gym before the race so you are not outside in the cold, or rain etc. Plenty of port of potties outside the school which is where the race starts and ends, so u literally have a 50m walk to the start and finish line. Parking is very convenient, if you get there 45min-hour before race you can snag a parking spot at a nearby school and walk 1 km to the other school. There is also a bus shuttle maybe a few miles away that seems to be quite convenient. The course circles Grosse isle, it is flat mostly road with a bit of sidewalk, and at mile 10 you run through an airport hangar. The race is a good place to snag a PR! The medals are usually quite nice, you get a long sleeve shirt with a very cool logo of running shoes as lungs. they also give you cotton gloves with the Rock CF logo which i really like. I hope you enjoyed my review and check out this little gem of a race one day!
