I ran the half marathon in 2013. It starts halfway through the marathon course and doesn't have the huge hills that the marathoners have to deal with during the first 13 miles. There is almost no crowd support...literally I didn't hear a single cow bell! But, I did have a deer dart across the road about 50 feet in front of me.

Packet pick up was a breeze. The T-shirt was thin and flimsy. Really sub-par. No 'expo' to speak of. There are busses to take you to the start lines. The course ends in a park and the bus brings you back to the high school, where they offer free use of the showers in the locker rooms.

Post race food was the standard fare...bananas, bagels, grapes, cookies, gatorade. It was really cold so I didn't stay long at the finish line. Everyone who crossed the finish line had their name announced and that was a nice touch.

Each mile was clearly marked with large signs (different for the full and half). Very few porta potties and I only saw one photographer on the course. For most of the race, I was running pretty much by myself, so I was really grateful for my ipod to keep me company, although I can see how nature-lovers would enjoy the relative solitude of this course.

The course was open to traffic, but most of the vehicles seemed to know what was going on and they slowly made their way around the runners. The fast marathoners and wheel chair marathoners had to weave their way through the half marathoners as they caught up, but I think it is encouraging to see the faster runners.

If you don't want a big event, you may like this race.
