Hilly course -- more than the IntownTen (10k) that was run in March, even though both races are in VaHi. The 3-4km stretch is rough, but gets easier for the last km. The cooler weather helped a lot this year. Not looking forward to running this in the future when it's much hotter. Although difficult, a race definitely worth running and it's always fun running through VaHi.
If you dont like this course, your a wuss! This "elite" runner goes out very fast and blows up and miles 2 and screams "this course sucks". This is just when all of the hills begin! Suck it up.

This route is fairly nice, with lost of shade (except at the intersections). Lanier is a boulevard, so there are two lanes of traffic separated by a median, which is perfect for the run. The second half of the course is almost entirely uphill, though, so pace yourself.
