Review of Palm Springs Half Marathon by ajyacht

Posted by: on February, 24 2012

Second year in a row running this race. Had a great time this year and last year. Well organized and I don’t even sign up until the day of the race. Always fun and great treats along the way. Well marked and the weather is pretty nice. The race shirts look good and the after race items are nice. Love that they used water bottles so you could not waste cups if you wanted. I would have had a personal best but one of the folks I was running with ran into a parked truck (and they were talking to me at the time) so I stopped for about 8 minutes till they could continue. But I still had one of my top race times and that was great! Beautiful neighborhoods to drive through also.
