Well organized race from packet pickup to the finish. The course is not awesome but hey, its DAB so theres not a very good canvass to start from. The race track was gorgeous, very well organized and maintained. Kudos to the track management. My time was a joke, though lol

I had an excellent race. Well marked, well run. Just one thing, because it was on big roads and an out and back course with some twists and turns, the course came up long on my Garmin. Why? Cause the race is measured by the tangents and we run on the outside of the cones... which leads to a race thats 13.25 miles long.

This the 2nd year I run this 1/2 Marathon. Its a great event in a great location. The support along the route is very good. The bling for participating in the Speedway Challengeis the best.

The race was extremely well organized! There were lots of water stops and restrooms at the stops. The pre-race information was very detailed. Great bling and towel after the race. Everything was just perfect. The volunteers were awesome. Loved running on the track. It was a great experience. Will definitely do the race again and recommend it to others.

This sums up my wonderful weekend that my kids got me for Christmas!! I really enjoyed running the Daytona International Speedway!! Would totally do this race again!! The course was great and felt extremely safe. Many water stops and Porta-potties! Very very well organized. Hotels close to venue for reasonable prices too!!

This is the 3rd year I have done this HM and it's my favorite one! Weather is usually great (Feb in Florida!) , and it is a flat course, except for the one bridge. There are so many police volunteers and the route is very clear. My daughter ran it for the first time this year and she asked me "are there places where we can go the wrong way?" because she's had that happen in other HM and Ms. I told her - no! It's so well marked. There were SO many water stations also! The medal and shirt and towel are all beautiful! I always tell everyone to run this HM! The track is very fun to run around also!

Race announcer, location, race car at the start, awards, and volunteers were all great!! I wish there had been more music on the course or more spectators out cheering. Overall, race was not especially competitive, would be more fun to have some more fast people. Typically giving out prize money - even if not a lot - brings in some serious competitors. Location is so cool I'd think that would be a big draw for people as well.

I thought the race was great for my first half marathon. I was hoping to run on the beach though but overall I think you guys did a great job

This is an awesome race! I love the course and there is great support along the route. This was our second year doing the Challenge and we plan on making it every year! The only down side this year was the post-race breakfast. After the pancakes, eggs, sausage, etc in 2017, the pre-wrapped biscuits were a bit of a letdown. But more than that, the only drinks that we saw were coffee and beer. There are many that don't drink either, or want them after a race. It would have been great to have alternatives, water/tea/hot chocolate/etc. But we WILL be back to do it all again in 2019!

Me? I ran like dog sh*t. That aside, fun and challenging course. Good vibe. My one constructive critique was that the water stations were somewhat erratically spaced.

This race is unique - running on the actual speedway, and on Daytona beach! (I was a little disappointed that the course was changed due to the tides, so we couldnt run on the beach this year). It was so family friendly and well organized. Parking was close to the venue, bathrooms were everywhere. The Run course was almost flat except one section. So it is a pretty fast course. Faster finishers can also cheer other runners inside the speedway too! It was great - highly recommend it - and the finishers shirt design is great!

I enjoyed the race. I especially liked the pacer that held the sign for a 2:45 finish. Though I only kept up for a few miles I enjoyed the interval running and hearing her story of how she started running.

Race part of it did not go well for me. However, it was very well organized, and there was plenty of people on course to help assist with handing out water/gatorade and to guide. The experience of running on the track was great, but besides that the course was a little boring and the heat got to me. I think a 7am start in the future would be best.

Excellent Race - Strongly recommend it for so many reasons! Ease of access, tons of parking and restrooms, super quick and easy packet pick-up and parking - even on race morning. All the volunteers were great! This was my wife's and my first time doing this event, and we would both love to come back. The music was great, and the announcing of finishers and awards ceremony were great! We love the finisher's shirts and medals! The aid station spacing was perfect, and the course is among the fastest 1/2 marathon courses I've done. One of the best things for me was the pacers. I started off with Kim at 8:00 minute miles, and she kept a group of about 25 or so of us right on time. After 3 miles with Kim, I worked my way up to Keith (1:40 goal time) over a couple miles. He was keeping a dozen or so runners right at the 7:38 pace as planned. After the 10 K mark, I pushed forward to see how much more time I could cut off, and while the big overpass was a bit of a challenge, coming downhill on the way back helped me set a strong pace for the last 4 miles. It was great to see runners of all ages, and a few costumes too. Again, great location for a little vacation, great venue, absolutely no hassles with registration or anything. Strongly recommend this race!

2018 Speedway Beach and Back half marathon was my second half and my second Daytona Beach and Back also. My conditioning for the first event left much to be desired. This second time around everything went well and it was a wonderful overall experience.
