Lace up your boots because this is a great course for a PR or BQ. Not only is it mostly flat, but there was a plethora of crowd support along the course. Not to mention that you're running with 10,000+ half marathoners.

Wow -- what a race. Everything about this event was awesome. The course was outstanding and the organization was top-notch. I haven't heard the best things about the Competitor Group, but many friends recommended it, so I gave it a try… and I was not disappointed. The course itself was definitely the highlight. Beautiful parks, downtown, and cool neighborhoods.. and it's shady! You can't go wrong with this race. Do It!

Rock and Roll events just don't do it for me anymore. I must admit that I'm always drawn-in by the large crowds and awesome music, but the organization is always lacking. They definitely need to hire more employees and bring-on more volunteers. And, they really need to work on their pre-race logistics. The expo, packet-up, and shuttle were all a joke. It's too bad because the course is actually pretty good and this event definitely has the opportunity to become a top-10 race. They just need to fine tune the logistics.

Yes, RNR events are typically more expensive than your average marathon, but you get what you pay for. Where else can you have bands every mile on the course? -- I absolutely love it!
