    This race is starts/finishes in the parking lot of the HEB Center. The 10k was a double loop of the out and back course of a 5k with a turn around loop right before the finish line. It a fairly flat course with a few uphill sections. The course had no shade so it could have been really hot but we had rain and more rain which kept the temperature pleasant. Water was located at about half way in the out and back which allowed you to hit it 4 times during the 10k. The 10k started approximately 10 minutes before the 5k with the same start/finish location. Participants had different colored bibs so the volunteers were able to easily direct you to the correct place for the finish line/turn around loop. After the race they had bottled water, bananas, oranges, a variety of chips, apple juice and nuun. There were a variety of vendors with giveaways such as stress balls, grocery bags, ice/heat packs and cups.

    The race is small with approximately 100 runners in the 10k and 200 5k finishers but there was still some very talented runners out there. Since this was a fundraising race , there were quite a bit of walkers and people who participated as a “sleeper” who did not actually run. Each participant received a white t-shirt. Awards were given to 1st, 2nd, 3rd place in age groups (5 year groupings) and received a medal and 1st place also received a $10 gift card to Ready to Run. The overall male and female winners and master winners received a small trophy. There is also free race photography, there was a photo booth at the start/finish and photographers at the start, and finish.

    The race was extremely well ran especially given the weather until it came time to do the awards. The awards started two hours after the start of the race (approx an hour finishing), they started with the 5k and then raffles and then 10k awards. It took over an hour to receive my award after the awards started which was a total bummer when you are waiting in the rain and are wet and cold. I received 2nd place in my age group.
