    This race was okay. Not bad, not great, just average for races… and these days average means a well-organized race with a tee-shirt, or some other swag. We got a long-sleeve shirt, which is a plus, but also got a coffee cup, which I love because so few races do anything other than a shirt and metal.

    The downside of this race was that the course wasn’t particularly creative or scenic. It was a below average course and I wouldn’t do this race again unless there was nothing else that looked decent for this racing month. I’m not discouraging runners from doing the run, I’m glad I did it, but I wouldn’t do it again.

    Dawsonville is a cute little town and it’s a scenic area, which makes the course even more disappointing, given all the beauty around it. Parking was easy, and this was one of the few races taking place during the Covid racing season, and for that I’m grateful. Was nice to be out with runners again. And, to be fair, this was a VERY small race. Only 36 runners in the 10k field. Not sure about the 5k field, but there were way more people running than 36.

    I don’t remember water stops. They may have had one, but probably only one since there was some looping in the course. But I don’t even remember for sure if there was one.

    With all of that said, I didn’t reach my target time, but this was still a PR for me in the 10k category, so I can’t complain about that!
