    As someone who has been running the Florida Road Races events for 5 years, I was highly disappointed with the way that the Clearwater Distance Classic was executed.
    There was a new race director that took over FRR starting with this race. He has been an RD for many other races, but they were all in New England. The course itself was essentially the same as in past races, however, that is the only thing that is equal to past events.

    -The Shirts were too small
    -As a back of the pack runner, I found that all of the food and drinks were gone when I finished and nearly all of the post race area was torn down already.
    -There was minimal water stops on the first half of the race even though it was a warm day.
    -The 5 mile runners only had a single water stop
    -Water Stops were out of Gatorade and some were very low on water.
    -Medals were not available for the Half Marathon finishers and not enough medals were there for the 5 milers.
    -The race course was being taken apart even before the cut off times, even though there were runners on the course.

    All in all, I was quite disappointed because after running 15 FRR races this didn’t meet the standards that were already established. If these do not improve I would highly recommend to skip these races.

    updated my review after Millenium Running screwed the pooch on the 2018 Clearwater Classic. This was NOT Chris Lauber’s doing. If anything went wrong at this year’s race, it was absolutely not his fault. Mr. Mortimer of Millenium Racing is one of the worst race directors i’ve come across. Not caring about runners, only HIS team and THEIR finish times.
