13.1 Atlanta Half Marathon – Course and Elevation

  • Course starts and end at Oglethorpe University (great finish party).
  • The first 2-3 miles (for my speed) were in the dark. The little speed bumps on dark roads were tripping obstacles.
  • Small but fun race with no corrals. 
  • The running in the dark in the beginning may have partly contributed to me going out a tad too quickly.
  • The last bit of 2 miles or so on Peachtree St felt like huge long hills.
  • UPHILL FINISH!! Seriously, who does that at the end of 13.1 miles. Even the ING Georgia in March with worse hills had the last 0.1 stretch downhill. I could see the finish as I entered the campus, but had to wind down and turn into the campus and then run uphill.
