    Rediculous to be exactly 1 mile short when we ran in circles in city parks, it was 91 degrees at the start and the water stations had HOT water , just one had ice water and not enough volunteers so u had to pour it yourself into cups. After 845 we are running in the dark and a guy fell down and got hurt. Don’t do this race, not safe

    That is REALLY disappointing! I did Change of Pace's Turkey Trot in 2016 and it was done pretty well. It's not like anyone who's spent a summer in the Davis area won't know summer will be HOT, so warm/hot water and under-staffed?! With Davis, Woodland, Pioneer, and Woodland Christian High Schools (= athletics programs) all within 10 or 20 miles?

    BTW, ACOP's website does advise, "Please be advised that as this is an evening event, headlamps or flashlights and reflective clothing are STRONGLY recommended." Running in the dark is a different "animal", so even this is kind of a light warning.

    Don’t kid yourself. It’s going to be hot out there. Even if “cooler” years, it’s hot. I had a lot of fun thouch. It was challenging and I think that’s why I liked it. There were enough water stations but I had to drink like 2 cups at each station to keep hydrated. The course was also a little confusing because there were so many turns. I liked it though and I would do it again. (Just adding that the little weather thing says the high for 2017 was 89 degrees? That’s crap. It was close to 100 degrees at the start. The announcer even said so, I remember because it made me more nervous)

    I guess the past two years I’ve run this there were record low temps in Davis. NOT THIS YEAR. It was nearly 100 degrees when we started and by mile 4 I started getting dizzy and chills. I had to walk a lot of the course, but finished. But I was disappointed because one of the water stops started closing up early and believe me, we NEEDED them. They also ran out of shirts and the medals seemed less quality this year. Still a great course, but I was disappointed after my last couple of years loving this race.

    This is one of the nicest races I have ever run. The course is lovely, the people are wonderful! It does get a little spooky near the end when it gets dark, so if you’re a slower runner (like me) bright a light because the trail gets bumpy at times.

    Repeat runner for this race, did the 10K in 2011 and 2012, 5K in 2013. Since it’s a July race, even with the evening start it can get pretty hot weatherwise. The 10K finishes just before dark, so only the half marathoners have to actually run at night. Tech shirts and medals glow in the dark which is neat.

    This was my 2nd half marathon & my first nighttime race. It was definitely different racing on a warm summer evening, but it was nice as it got dark & cooled down somewhat. It was an enjoyable event that I hope to do again in the future, and the glow-in-the-dark shirts are super fun! My only complaint was that the final mile of the half was on a rocky gravel road with no lighting… I feel that the route could be reworked so that this part would be done during the daylight, and the final miles would be better off being flat paved road, if possible. I realize headlamps could help with this – but it’s a minor annoyance to wear a headlamp for a couple hours ahead of time, to only need it in the last 20-30min. Overall, though, it’s a fun event that I liked a lot.

    A Change of Pace puts on great races with great bling and nice t-shirts. Davis courses are a bit boring but nice and flat. Starting a race at 7 pm is not optimal for me. I prefer the early races but this race was great. Only complaint, and it is consistent with their races especially when there is a 5K involved, is the line for age group awards and extra medals.
