    This is a local 5K located in a small town about 20-25 minutes outside Rochester. I was on call this weekend so I was just looking to do a local 5K. Luckily this weekend the weather was much cooler and I was hoping to break 40 minutes. The race starts in a park and there is race day packet pick-up. There was about 100 participants so it was very easy. Packet also included a fine cotton T-shirt exactly what you’d expect for a race like this. The course is a lollipop loop starting at the park and going through the main part of the town. There is a separate start and finish. Only the finish has a timing mat but it’s such a small field everyone crossed the start line within a few seconds. The course is fine. Nothing too exciting. pretty typical of a small town 5K with some farmland and a neighborhood and a bit downtown. There were a few spectators from the town which was appreciated. It was well marked and there were 2 water stops. One you passed twice so lots of water for a 5K. Course pretty flat with just some minor hills and inclines. The only slight difficulty is it is net downhill the first half and net uphill the second half. Even with more of an incline the second half I was feeling better this race and kept a consistent pace with run-walk intervals and while still much slower than usual had my fastest 5K this summer. At the finish line there is a clock and an arch. There is no medal which is fine for a small race like this. There was also water bottles and a good snack selection including granola bars. Overall no the most exciting race ever but no complaints. As it is close by I would do it again if I were in town for race weekend.
