Ran in 2014. Best swag to date. Beautiful course. Hilly though if your from ON where it's flat. Love the jacket I got for the full marathon and medal too. Loved Victoria too so the run was a great tour of a gorgeous city.

REVIEW FOR HALF MARATHON

A good-sized event in a beautiful city.

Registration cost is fairly standard and a good rate if you sign up early. Long-sleeve tech shirts for the HM are a nice step-up from many other races. A decent-sized expo, optional guest speakers, course tours, and night-before dinner if you want to make it a bigger event.

Very similar to the TC10k; the start/finish areas are only moved a block, first 3k and last 4k are on the same pavement, and the start corral has finishing-time signs that aren't enforced. And also more food and drink than you'll need at the finish.

The course gives a good mix of city and ocean-side running with ample entertainment and water stations. 'Normal' elevation changes, nothing overly challenging. The course provides several opportunities to see the people ahead and behind so you can spot your friends easily. Markers every KM are big an easy to spot. Also lots of crowd support for this event.

The first water station was a complete mess with not nearly enough volunteers, but it was early enough (~3km) that if you're going for time you're not going to be needing it anyway.

Downside is that the event uses MarathonFoto which will pester you with emails for years to buy their poor-quality photos until you opt-out.

Well-run, well-organized event, that's a very good choice for your first or fortieth Half.
