From the beginning, this race was just completely unorganized and such a mess. Multiple times, the event changed as it was supposed to be a “women’s only” race but that was nixed by the race directors. The start times changed a few times as well.

The course was a disaster and they are very lucky nobody got injured nor hit from a vehicle on the course. Traffic was barely stopped. I had to stop and wait multiple times for semi trucks and vehicles turning or in the road. The course was pathetically marked and there were not enough people directing the runners which way to go and there was a lack of water stations.

The after party was a joke as well. Originally, the race promised an “open bar” of wine and beer and food for after. One week before the race date, we receive an email stating we will only receive one drink ticket. Of course they do not offer any refunds but promised open bar to have people sign up. This was complete false advertising! They also promised wine glasses to all but they ran out of those as well. Luckily, I did get mine.

This race is great because of the community support. Throughout the entire race there are groups of people cheering you on which just makes the race special. There are more than enough water stations which is greatly appreciated as it seems like it is always the hottest day of the year for this race! The course itself is a little tough because of the “giant hill” and the number of runners. It was difficult to get a good pace because there are just so many people to weave in and out of.

The atmosphere and after party are what sets this race apart from any other race. You will not find a better after party than this at Saranac Brewery.

The organization and communication of the race was spectacular as well.

The only thing I would change is instead of receiving a little pin, I wish we would get medals instead but besides that everything is incredible!
