This was my first Half-Marathon, so I can't compare it to any others (I did run the Medoc Mountain 10 miler and loved it) However, this course was great, may be my new favorite. It was very challenging and put together extremely well. I have never seen so many aid stations; they were so welcome and kept me going strong. The city was great, people super nice and friendly all along the route, and the views were spectacular. I hope to be back next year.

Organizers wanted a very hard course and they have one. Hardest half course I have run(have ran 8 previously). Very challenging first 5mi with steep grades. Then two miles of steep downhill. Flat and rolling hills make up next 5mi. Best part is the last mile being slightly downhill with the last .5 being flat. Not a PB course but well worth doing.
