I thought it was well organized and supported. The spectators were amazing and it is to benefit a great cause.
The Nuun energy drink supplied at the aid stations immediately caused me GI distress and I shouldn't have taken any since I've never used it before. Most races have Gatorade or Poweraide and this is what I train with. I think this was a poor choice by the race organizers.
I have nothing but praise for how this event was organized and ran. I was in the 2nd corral, so I got to start very close to race time. There were 3 minutes between the start of each corral and I would have not liked being farther back and thus waiting a long time to start. The pacing group I was in (3:10) was spot on through 19, when I had to start slowing d/t GI distress.
Some rolling hills, but not too tough of a course

Excellent energy from the crowd and other racers. Great cool weather. Some rolling hills, but not too tough of a course.
Great course for an even better cause. Running through the St. Jude campus during mile 5 was AMAZING!! The crowd support was great and there were aid stations every mile. I will definitely be back to this one!
The course has some small rolling hills but nothing too bad. The last 6 miles are more downhill. This is a great course to PR on!
