Great flat course
The finish is positioned at mile 12 which means you have to run 1 mile in the opposite direction to the start in order to double-back to get to mile 13.1, the finish. My husband witnessed multiple runners seeing the finish and just crossing it without doing the correct loop. Cheating the runners who complete the whole 13.1 out of their finishing position.
The medal is very nice
