Jacksonville Half Marathon
Sunday, December 18, 2016
On Sunday, December 18, 2016 I race walked the Jacksonville Half Marathon in Jacksonville, Florida. The event had a 5K, a half marathon, and a full marathon with a total of approximately 2100 entries. The course was relatively flat with only slight changes of altitude and utilized dedicated lanes on the suburban roads with many policer officers completely controlling the traffic and ensuring that the participants and traffic remain separated. The temperature remained in the low to middle 70s with no wind and fog which meant the humidity was about 100% and causing it to be somewhat warm. Water/Gatorade stations were located every 1.5 miles and had plenty of volunteers taking care of the needs of the participants. The event was well organized as usual and fun to do. I have done the event 12 years and have completed 6 marathons and 6 half marathons.
