A fun race on a nice scenic trail around the north end of Lake Hodges. A tough course, with a lot of small ups and downs and a few short hills. The course this year was slightly short at about 12.9 miles (they were trying to adjust for it being a little long last year, so still tweeting it). The race director was very personable, excellent volunteers. All the usual schwag plus more, for less cost then most other half marathons.
