I'm shopping for a HM for the next two weekends here in the DC-MD-VA-PA area and came up with these three. (With so many races refusing refunds, transfers, and deferrals, I rarely sign up for races more than a week or two in advance.) All are about an hour's drive.
Freedom's Run HM - I'm leaning toward this one. Just $50, even at this late date. Only thing that concerns me is that they've announced a new course to avoid national park closures and it sounds like it must be a compromise because they're permitting deferrals just for people who are unhappy with the new course.
Gettysburg HM - Their website and facebook page don't explain if the gov shutdown is a problem or how they'll handle it.Ugh. (Their online presence is rather lacking in a lot of details. Their race results in particular are crappy. I figure this is not a sign for the rest.) Plus, it's $75. Unclear why this race is so much more expensive.
Heritage HM - This one is the most convenient to me and sounds like a very-well organized race. 12 water stops for an HM?! Restaurant food at the end. And just $50 including shirts and medals. Only reason I put this in last place is that the course is flat. I know people who love flat courses but that's just not my thing. (Plus the name sucks, lol.)
Anyone run any of these three?
