Obviously this year many races are virtual. I gave all five stars because I cannot judge some categories as I didn’t get to experience them. However, that said, I have a feeling this race is a lot of fun. I loved the swag, especially because instead of a race tee it is a race zip up hoodie! Perfect for colder runs! It also makes this race stand out a bit from other races. The swag also included chocolate and hot chocolate mix. I have been wanting to run this race for a while and I am planning to sign up for a (fingers crossed) live race in 2022!

I have run this race twice, first as a relay and then I ran the 10k. The year of the relay my partner wasn’t at the handoff point and I accidentally passed it and had to run back and wait for her. The year of the 10k the race was too short. The race atmosphere was great and it is a good race for the swag and the overall experience but I hope these two issues are addressed in the future.

I chose this race because it was my birthday weekend and nothing like running a race to celebrate a birthday. I absolutely loved this race! The flat course is great, of course, but the atmosphere made it too much fun. All the bands were fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed running through the city. I would love to run this race again.

I have done various races in the Alamo Beer Challenge, but the last time I did all four races was 2016. The races are designed to help runners prepare for Rock n’ Roll San Antonio. Each race offers at least two distances for both marathoners and half marathoners. The race experience, courses, and scenery are all great but what makes them awesome races is the race management. Scallywompus is always prepared and organized and knows how to put on a great race.
