    Great race! Well marked course.Organized after-party.Results/ awards in a timely fashion.3rd year running (10k twice, 5k once) will be back.
  • Did the event in 2019

    My first BDR and I was impressed. I have participated in 200+ races. Seen some good and not so good. The BDR folks have they're act together. I felt like a priority. The event was safe and secure.
  • Did the event in 2019

    Probably my favorite race of series. When they say this race (and series) is put on by runners for runners, they mean it. What other race for one price do you get, all you can eat from Outback, all you can drink beer, bloody marys, and hard sparkling water. Not to mention the course was fully supported with well-maintained roads, well marked and plenty of aid stations. The race environment is competitive and fun with the runner experience being the number `1 priority for Best Damn Events. You will never be disappointed running in any of this series of races.
  • Did the event in 2019

    A great race, in a great place. The post-race food, vendors and award area events are fun, well organized and worth the price alone.
  • Did the event in 2019

    Very good race, great after party, finish line and competition. Great food vendors. You name it this race has it.
  • Did the event in 2019

    I've done this race 3 years in a row but this was my first time running the 10k on this course. The course is very nice with good scenery. I think it organized very well and the after festivities were awesome.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Plenty of bathrooms and course was marked good.
  • Did the event in 2018

    It was fantastic. 1st BDR race and enjoyed it. Will do another for sure. Thank you
  • Did the event in 2018

    This is my 3rd year running the half marathon and every year I get better. I finished 13 minutes faster then last year. I love that the course has some suttle hills thrown in and the course isn't crammed.
