Excellent Half- Marathon

This was my first ever half marathon race. What a tremendous experience! The route was well marked with drink/aid stations, port-a-potties and supporters. All road traffic was blocked off for runner safety and the route was on country roads and easy on the legs. The route is a challenge with rolling hills but the scenery was well worth it! I would highly encourage you to participate in this half marathon!
