Really enjoyed this race for my first half marathon. Really great route along the Niagara River and nice family friendly location for start/end of the race with easy parking in the park. Aid stations were well positioned and volunteered at 2, 4, and 6 mile along the out and back course. Many people were out to encourage the runners along the route. Coming from southern Ontario I really appreciated the 10am start and also like it being on Saturday. The time graded finishers medals were awesome and added to the incentive! Great food/snacks after the race as well as prizes. Communication for a first timer could have been much better. Signs to find registration, portable toilets, and the starting line would have been helpful, but found them OK after asking other runners. The announcement system was too quiet at the start of the race so people further back could not hear and the race was over 4 minutes late starting. It would have been nice to announce the finishers as they crossed the line. A cotton t-shirt was provided, but even though I was one of the first to register and had my shirt size on my bib, it seems there was no effort to ensure that early registrants got the correct size. These relatively small things could make this good event a fantastic event, but all in all a good race and hope to do it again.
