Review of Temecula Half Marathon & 5K by cnohejl

Posted by: on January, 26 2012

I really enjoyed this race – the course was beautiful, it was hosted on a Saturday (which allowed for wine tasting after), and starting/ending a race at a winery was a nice change in pace. The course was pretty hilly – with one large hill in the beginning and rolling hills after that. I liked the fact that the course covered asphalt and dirt roads and prefer small races. I felt like it was a classy experience – appreciated the duffel bag give away, classy medal, and the venue. The only challenge was the rain, which made the pre-race and post-race experience feel cramped (due to the fact we were all huddled inside). I would recommend this race to friends and would interested in running it again – in the hopes of some sunshine 🙂
