2014 Golden Gate Half Marathon (formerly US Half)

5 starsalmost 5 years ago

This was my most exciting half marathon! I loved it! Favourite part: the bridge, the scenery. I think I might have liked a wave start to get up to my speed and rhythm faster. All else was perfect!

2014 Walnut Creek Half Marathon

5 starsalmost 5 years ago

My Favorite Part

The Walnut Creek Half is a small race, therefore everyone is really nice, you can't get lost, AND you might score an age group award!! They also gave free massages!!

Recommended Changes

This year the race had to be shortened because of a drunk driver who caused a complete road closure. However, the organizers did their very best to keep the event going, instead of just canceling completely! Thus, I hope of course, that next year it will be a full 13.1 distance again. BUT it was awesome even so!

Tips for Future Participants

Stay close to the pacers! I didn't get a chance to run the mountain because of the said incident, but be advised, there's a hill in there!

2014 Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Half

4 starsalmost 5 years ago

Great race! This was my first half overall, and right away with 15000 people!
We got a beer opener finisher medal, and there were live bands along the course AND in the finisher's area.
The event was great, the shirt was so-so - it was reallllyyy hot, so maybe keep that in mind for future years.
