    – race day pick-up
    – free Tim Horton’s coffee

    – race kit has full-sized samples and the swag was a full-zip fleece jacket
    – lots of knowledgeable volunteers
    – beautiful scenery on a private golf course
    – race participants capped at 400(?) – anyway, the course leaves in waves and is not crowded
    – lots of water/energy drink stations
    – race route uses the full golf course so lots of scenery changes
    – free race photos
    – the medal is a decent-sized bottle opener on a lanyard with velcro closure
    – buffet lunch

    The bad things about this race:

    I have nothing but good things to say about this race which is now in my annual must-do category (along with the Tannenbaum 10k and the Toronto Ten Miler).

    I signed up my sister for this race on Christmas Eve as her holiday gift. I asked the RD a question, not expecting an answer before the gift-buying deadline, but Sara of Raceworks actually got back to me on the same day – yes, on Christmas Eve! The RD gets much love from me for that alone.

    Race kit pick up was fast and smooth. This race includes a good quality tech jacket – Leslie Jordan “Edge” style with embroidered logo – and a race kit with full-size items including Neutrogena face cream, spray-on sunscreen, men’s aftershave, Listerine, and other Johnson & Johnson products.

    The location was easy to get to with lots of free parking right by the golf club house. Before the race, there was free Tim Horton’s coffee and water. There were lots of lockers, free of charge to use. Runners were able to wait in the club to stay warm and use the indoor bathrooms. The start line was right at the club entrance, so the trek to the start /finish was very short. Participants were seeded in waves to avoid crowding.

    The race is 16k on the rolling cart paths of the golf course, and is technically challenging. There are no straight, flat sections. Most of the trail is in full sunlight, which was welcome after such a harsh winter. It’s a beautiful course, as one would expect for the site of the Canadian Open golf tournament.

    After the race, participants could take showers free of charge. The club provided soap, shampoo, moisturizer, towels and hair dryers. The after-race lunch included green salads, chili with a vegetarian option, vegetarian hot pasta, assorted rolls and cold cuts plus condiments and sliced tomatoes and onions, juice, pop and water. Desserts included bars, tarts and fruit. The service was excellent everywhere in the club, with the first-class service that Angus Glen is known for.

    The medal is a decent size and design and is a bottle opener. A nice touch is that the ribbon has a velcro closure so that you can slip the medal off when using it to open bottles.

    Official photos were free for downloading from the Facebook event page, and were posted quickly – only a few hours after the race!

    The registration fee was $90 but worth every penny, and I’ve already committed to signing up for next year.
