First time running a half marathon!

This was the perfect race to run my first half-marathon and I will definitely be doing it again! Professionally managed with great volunteers and staff who were responsive to emails! They even had massages for runners post-race! Awesome time! Thanks so much!

Great first half marathon!

The Kennebec Rail Trail Half was an awesome flat fast course, 90% off road and mostly shaded. Running the 2014 Kennebec Rail Trail Half was a really positive start to my road running and I continue to run road races today! The only down side is they take a while to get the results posted online.
