    The race proceeds go to charity so I hesitate to be too harsh. Plus, it was during a pandemic so that brings struggles too.
    The course was overall pretty great. The first couple miles aren’t anything great, but then the Dahlia fields are pretty incredible. After you leave the Dahlia fields you run on a nice trail and through some nice Oregon country area. It is relatively flat.

    The biggest complaint about the race was that I spent a great amount of time not knowing whether or not I was on the course! There was no volunteers on the course, which makes no sense! How does it create a COVID risk to have someone stand on a corner and tell runners which way to turn? It was made worse that the race is relatively small so I often didn’t have runners within 100s of yards in front or behind me. I wasted a lot of mental energy concerned I had missed a turn somewhere.

    I wasn’t alone in my frustration. The race sent an email the day after apologizing for the confusion and lack of direction on the course. I would imagine that would mean in future years it will be taken care of.
