The most stand-out, amazing part of this race was the scenery! You see palm trees EVERYWHERE (which is beautiful if you come from a state that’s not Hawaii or Florida), you see the beach, surfers, swimmers, people on beach cruiser bikes, surf and snack shops, beach houses, the locals, etc. In addition, they have bands playing upbeat beach music, perfect for pace and for atmosphere. The weather, although slightly on the warmer scale, makes the whole scenery even more breath-taking. It’s fair and sunny, with a refreshing ocean breeze and little to no humidity. The race set-up was smooth. However, the corrals were a bit confusing because some of the slower people were placed in a closer corral with the faster people, while mid-pace people stayed in the back? But, not a big problem at all. There were several restroom stations, so if one had a line, just jog a couple miles to the next. There were many water/energy drink/energy snack stations along the way, about one every mile. The expo was just as enjoyable.. many free food/drink samples!

For the price you pay for this run, it is worth it. Pay any more, and it may be debatable. The scenery is OK. I’ve seen worse and I’ve seen better. Three-quarters of the race is running through the small downtown area of Riverside. Not so much “mission” seeing. But, there is about a quarter of the run where you run along the backside of a hill and see nice scenery of the valley. The weather was warm/hot, but manageable at a slower pace. They include a nice tech t-shirt.

My favorite part about this run is the weather. COOL, CLOUDY, and NON-HUMID. Mix that with a flat course and you’ve got the recipe for a PR. The only thing was that the scenery is not so “wow”, but it’s still a distraction from too much focus on the physical toll of running. Even better, the expo is AMAZING. It is the BEST expo I have ever been to. So many free items, I had 2 whole tote bags filled with running stuff. And it’s not all just the typical energy foods and drinks. FREE WORK OUT CLOTHING, WATER BOTTLES, and MASSAGES (yes, free legitimate massages at the expo, not a coupon, and no membership or info are asked of you). By the end of the race, the sun comes out and it’s a beautiful, cool, crisp day out. In addition, if you run this run, the Long Beach run, and the Surf City Run, you get an additional medal!
