This is probably the most well-organized race I have run and I just love the post-race food and atmosphere. I ran this race last year and immediately signed up again because it was so well done! They also have great pacers usually spaced every five minutes (1:45, 1:50, 1:55, 2:00) which is awesome. Both years have started right on time and bib pick up, bag checks, and parking is super easy.

The course itself is VERY flat and has lovely views of San Francisco. Both years I’ve run it had great weather (cold, no wind) but I can imagine sometimes it’s less than ideal (I’ve run this stretch of the trail a lot and it can get pretty windy). Most of the race is on a paved trail except for the turnaround point. The one negative was that the course was a bit long this year (0.10 mile) but they were upfront about that at the start (construction at the turn around point).

Overall, I would highly recommend this race and any others put on by Brazen!
