The corral start needed work. There was one entrance a ways back and it was difficult to make one’s way forward to the appropriate corral. Each corral needs its own entrance on the side.
The 7:30 start is really late for October in Southern California. While weather this time of year is a bit unpredictable, it’s generally fairly warm and starting so late made it really rough.
Also, the course is really crowded through the first 6 miles. So difficult to settle in to a good pace with strollers and slower runners on the narrow paths.
I did enjoy the race overall though. The spectators are a lot of fun at this race. Nice run along the beach after the half way point.
