I myself ran about 8.5 miles of the course today and LOVE it. We reversed the direction we originally planned so for everyone stressing about the hills...they are a bit more friendly running it the new way. You get to peak in elevation in the four mile area and despite having some more hills they are more rolling and some do last a distance but If you are trained for a half marathon and you run hill workouts you will be in a good spot for this race. The hardest roads are going to be Metz Road, Crestview Road, and Kelly Park Road. All three run parallel to each other so you are actually running the same hills; sort of!
While out running today actually had someone drive up next to me scoping out the course and making sure they understood it. Which is what brought this post on. If you have any specific course questions please ask and we will get you the answers. As for restrooms along the route...still working on that. Water stops are planned. We have signs for all the miles and will also have directional arrow signs along the course. Volunteers on the route and police at intersections. We will have a lead vehicle and a vehicle at the end following the last person in.
