    Race kit pick-up was fast. Kit included a few snacks, a short-sleeved tech shirt and bib.

    Parking on race day was excellent: free and within metres of the start/finish. It was so close to the action that many people remained in their cars to stay warm before the race, and skipped bag check because their vehicles were so close.

    The race itself takes place on the runway. I found each step painful (for my knees) as the airport runway is thick concrete, or asphalt over concrete. In retrospect, I should’ve known as the airstrip needs to hold up airplanes! Also, as you can imagine, the route was windswept and not that interesting.

    Lots of race support such as two water/Gatorade stations en route and many enthusiastic volunteers.

    The organization of the race was fantastic, but I rated it 3 shoes overall because of the concrete surface.
