    This race is starts/finishes in the parking lot of the Twin Lakes YMCA. The 5 miler was an out and back course along the Brushy Creek trail with about the first/last third of mile running through the parking lot to the start/finish line. It a fairly flat course for the area (only about 100 feet of gain total) so nice small rolling hills without only one memorable climb. The 5k was also an out and back that ran the same path for about a mile before tuning north for a different trail and then returning to the path of the 5milers. The course had plenty of shade but the chilly temps (in the mid 40s and cloudy) made that not important but on a sunny day it would have been much appreciated. Water was located at the split off point of the 5k and 5miler, about half way in between the turnaround and the split off and at the turnaround. Since they water stops could be hit both out and back, it allowed for plenty of hydration opportunities. The 5miler started approximately 5 minutes before the 5k with the same start/finish location. After the race they had bottled water, bananas, and a variety of bagels.

    The race is small with approximately 75 runners in the 5k and 100 5miler finishers. The race was not filled with top heavy talent which allowed a lot of first time podium finishes (especially is the 5k). Each participant received a long sleeve blue t-shirt, a drawstring backpack filled with flyers, and a finisher medal. Awards (trophies) were given to 1st, 2nd, 3rd place in age groups (10 year groupings). The overall male and female winners and master winners received a slightly bigger 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 well ran and the announcer was good about announcing each person as they crossed the finish line and did a good job of doing the awards in a timely manner. The only slip up was when reading the 5 miler awards, she accidentally skipped the overall/master awards and started with the age group awards but then realized her mistake and went back to the overall awards. The problem occurred when she went back to age group awards she skipped the awards she halfway announced because she thought those recipients weren’t there and so she inadvertently skipped my award. At the end of the results, I was able to still get my trophy but it was just kinda awkward. I received 2nd place in my age group.
