Overall a great route for the 1/2 marathon – mostly flat & downhill. Route includes some bike paths, streets, & side walks. Shuttle service to the start line was convenient. Was a bit concerned when we were dropped off in the dark on the side of the road and that start line had not been set up yet. Plenty of port-a-potties at the start. Great surf board mile markers. Enjoyed the ocean breeze to keep cool during the run.
