I'm looking for a local race in February and the Vancouver Lake 1/2 looks like a possibility. 

Anyone else running that, or have experience (good or bad) with it in the past?

Peter, you probably have surmised that it is a flat race.  So it can be fast.  Weather, however, is unpredictable and there is little to block any wind that may be blowing.

 

In my opinion, it is a very well organized event.

I second what Mark said. Many Lizards have run it in the past, especially back when it seemed to be the only winter race in the area (it used to be in January). It's very well organized, inexpensive, good course, friendly crowd. I would definitely recommend it.

Thanks for the votes of confidence. I just registered, so next time someone asks, I'll be able to give my two cents, too.  :smile:

 

Looking forward to it, and maybe seeing another Lizard or two out there.  :lizard:

It sounds like parking is very limited for the Vancouver Lake 1/2. Any other Lizards running it who would like to carpool the last few miles? (I'm driving in from down the Gorge, weather permitting, but could join up with anyone who's also running.) Let me know if you are and want to share a parking space.  :smile:

FYI on the lizard calendar it says the Vancouver Lake Half Marathon is on February 24, Saturday. That is incorrect, it is on Sunday February 25 at 10AM.  Just wanted to prevent someone making that mistake.
