Huge race, 10’s of thousands of participants. You will never be on your own and running the tangent is near impossible unless you’re a pro runner. That’s all part of the fun though, it’s more than a race it’s a 7.46 mile party.

This is still one of my favorite races, and I plan to do it yearly, the course is extremely fun with a dash of challenge, there are some extremely beautiful areas you get to run through as well.

I have some complaints nonetheless.

Mostly the race photos costing $15 each. I love that they use a local photographer, but when NegativeSplit hosts 90% of the races in the areas and their photos are included, it’s tough to see a price tag of $60 for 4 digital download photos.

The other thing I noticed this year was a lack of food vendors at the finish line compared to last year. I had less incentive to stick around this year than in 2022. I love buying food after a long race lol.

Great views of the lake for nearly the first 20 miles and last 2 miles.

The first hill (which is also the third hill) is a sneaky hill, it’s not a steep grade but long and can quietly sap some of your energy so be weary.

Miles about 3 to 13 can be a bit tough as the roar you’re on is sloped sideways for rain and snow melt so you are on a lot of uneven asphalt, not a huge issue but something everyone should know.

Aid stations were fun and plentiful, the course itself was fast and fun with a dash of challenge at the end. Fun finish line environment and fun process for the finisher shirts and medals.

The race staging and finishing zone was hopping. Tons of great food trucks, swag, music, and in a very very spectator and family friendly location.

Did the 10k in 2022 but have signed up for the Marathon in 2023!
