    Great race. Need to get to the race early to find parking. I was able to park right near the starting line. Weather was rainy and cold but what can you do. Amazing hoodie as swag and cool sunglasses medal. Nice views of the ocean.

    Only con is they do not have all the roads blocked off so you are running with traffic on the side of the road and crossing the road trying not to get hit by cars.

    There wasn’t anything really WRONG with this race, and I’m sure its great if you live in the area because its convenient, but overall the course was pretty boring. Since we traveled for the race and spent the night, it doesn’t make sense for us to repeat this race. There’s not much to see, especially the beach, which we got to see for all of 20 seconds. It’s a relatively easy course, just a couple of small hills and the race swag is pretty awesome.
