    This was almost a last minute registration for me. Used this event to Do my schedules 14 miler in training for Chicago.
    This run is at Norbuck Park and is mostly run on the Whiterock Lake Trail system (paved). Many other events are run from this park and run on the trail. This was my third on the same route. Parking is always an issue if you don’t get there early. There were three distances, 5K, 10K, and Half marathon. All three start and finish at the same spot. It is an out and back course. Almost flat other than a few small inclines that are almost a non factor. The 10K and Half started together and the 5K started about 15 minutes later. Course had a lot of shade but as the name states it was HOT. You want to pre-hydrate and not pass a water stop. There were plenary of water stops with water, sports drink, and some had cold wet towels. Great volunteers. Views of the lake, parks, and homes are the scenery. This is a popular trail so it was packed with others out getting their morning recreation. The ringing of the bike bells and calls of on your left were heard on most of the route. This race had pacers in the half at five minute intervals and that was nice. I hung with the 1:55 pacers for the first half to keep me from running beyond my desired pace. Nice event perk. Finishers got a nice medal, same to all no matter the distance. Ice cold water was also provided as well as cold towels, popsicles, and lots of vendors handing out snacks, drinks, and other items. Awards were given to top 3 in various age categories.
    Great even and I would run again if my schedule allows.
