Very well organized, with plentiful aid stations and GU. Parking near the start and finish was easy and free.

The hills between mile 16 and 22 are as bad as the course elevation profile shows. Don't let them scare you off! You'll be glad you conquered them!

Book Early or you will end up staying about 10 miles from the start/finish line.
