    This was a truly unique experience, a race on the historic shuttle landing runway. You have to be a US citizen to participate. A few days prior to the event we found out about the packet pick up. I don’t really see this as a glitch, especially since the event itself was absolutely wonderful. This was only the 3rd race at that location benefitting the American Cancer Society. Great cause, great location and the weather cooperated as well. There was a moist, cool mist which made the run on an exposed surface comfortable and pleasant. Afterwards all finishers got an absolutely amazing medal with a rocket, a satellite in space, the moon and stars. The words “Gateway to Space” slightly glow in the dark. All in all it was a fantastic, out of this world experience.

    You won’t find another venue like this; running on the shuttle landing strip. We could have used a little more info before the race, but race day itself was flawlessly produced. Times were quickly posted on line the same day, and a large number of free photographs were posted within a couple of days. The logistics of moving a large number of runners around the Kennedy Space Center was smoothly accomplished with comfortable buses. Overall a great experience. Looking forward to next year.
