  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Race was well organized and there was plenty of parking. The course is beautiful and although it rained hard the day before, there was only one spot around mile 12 where flooding was an issue.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    What a great well ran event. I grew up in Livermore so I was excited to I travel from Southern Oregon. The course was amazing. Even the malfunction of the bib tape failing didnt derail my effort. My bib fell off on the course but the finish line volunteers keeping manual track of finishers and time so my effort wasnt a loss. The atmosphere was up beat and fun. I am already registered for next year.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Lovely race. Only minor gripes: mile marker placement was inaccurate, overall course length appears to be slightly under 13.1, guidance about on-course nutrition was incomplete. But overall wonderful event.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great race. Very well organized, great email communication, easy packet pickup with many times and date options. Beautiful course! Just enough hills ;) would race it again!
