“You have made this my favorite half marathon over the years. It just keeps getting better and better! The price is right and I love the course, especially the part on the Pinellas Trail and the finish around the lake in Taylor Park. There are a number of places on the course where family members can take pictures and cheer you on. It’s impossible to go off course. Keep up the good work! ” – Alan Meyer, Former President of the Bradenton (FL) Runners Club
