  • Did the event in 2017

    I am on the fence about this race. I mean, the race quality is good and I have no complaints about the medal and the shirts. The course is fine but downtown so there might be some uneven brick roads in certain spots. And it's June so of course it's super duper hot. My biggest complaint is... if you aren't elite or super fast, you don't get ANY pie!! OK, it's cool that if you're really really fast you win an entire publix pie. But I'm not THAT fast. I'm mid-pack. 9-10min/miles. So I didn't win an entire pie. And then... come to find out... there are no other pies at the race! Not even a slice for us other runners! lol. I mean... I get the draw: you gotta be fast to "race for the pies"... but I wish I could be offered a slice at the end. Or even be able to buy a slice for $1 or something. lol. Come on!!

    If you love to watch elite runners, this race give you the chance because they have the Nike Championships prior to the general 5k. I love see elite runners and getting pumped before a race. For me the course was hot, but this is my first summer running in Florida and all races from April to Sept will be steamy. As always 1st Place puts on a great race. Only issue was the general 5k course ended up being different then what was posted online. Luckily some told my husband prior otherwise he never would have seen me. Great race, I will be back.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Very well organized. The course was filled with supporters. I thoroughly enjoyed both races I did. The 5K and the half Marathon. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Galloway and tried his running method. I would love to do this race again. Thinking of doing the full Marathon next year. My first to celebrate my 50th Birthday. Thank you for the organizers and volunteers, this was the best race I've ever done.
