I was surprised by the start of the race. When the second heat arrived, we were told we could start at anytime, since the race was chip timed. So, no national anthem or group send off — this felt a bit clunky. The course was far more difficult in the first 2+ miles than anticipated. The inclines more than offset the few gentle descents at this point. First timers we’re no prepared for this. Aid stations and support along the course was excellent. The only other hiccup was the chaos at dropped-off bag pickup. Bags arrived after runners were finishing. . . This meant bags were only broadly organized into piles delineated by the thousand number signifier. Making finding a bag quite difficult. I suggest that the trucks immediately come down to the finish area after all runners are started so that the gear can be properly organized and sorted. Overall an excellent event that could be improved upon with a few tweaks.
