Review of Salt Creek Half Marathon by

Posted by: on April, 21 2013

The marking of the 5K and 10 K courses was very misleading. Runners ended up turning around too late, because they couldn’t see the turn around signs. Water stations were not enough for the Half Marathon. No electrolytes available, just a few gu gels (but you had to ask for it). Post race was mediocre; the only highlights was Massage Envy, they offered great demo massages for all the runners. T-shirts were super large in all sizes (made for the incredible Hulk). The only good thing about this race was the beautiful views in Dana Point, and the challenging hills. Excellent warm up for the upcoming OC marathon, if you can find the turn around and don’t get lost….
