“We had a really great time running the half marathon. One of the things I really liked about this course is that there was a ton of support. Every mile there was water or Gatorade. Tons of volunteers and everybody was cheering and very supportive. The course was pretty and took us through a couple of parks. We highly recommend this half marathon.” – RunningInMakeup
