Review of America’s Finest City Half Marathon by

Posted by: on August, 22 2013

The weather was fantastic. Plenty of busses for getting you to the start. The course was excellent, plenty of water stations and potties along the way. The only complaints I have are……

1. the announcer………ummm, I seriously tried to count the number of times he said ummmmmm. Not sure if he was asleep or bored.
2. Didn’t even realize the race started, since when do you play the national anthem a whole half hour prior to race start and then no gun or bullhorn to announce we are running.

Other than that the race was nice. Flat run, only a couple of hills at the start and at the end, and well waiting those 30 seconds for the trolley wasn’t great.
