  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    It's a good idea to bring your own nutrition. They had water and Gatorade on course but no gels, or snacks.
  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    This course is nice because it is relatively flat, although there are a few minor inclines to test the legs. I ran the marathon and the out and back (x2) format was a little difficult mentally but the cool ocean breeze and the ocean views made for a very nice race.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    It was pretty much what i was expecting, it was exciting and fun
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Enjoyed running along the water. The event organizers kept us updated on pertinent information on the race and all volunteers were friendly.
