    This is a very good race. Normally I don’t like races that consist of laps (the 10K is 2 laps of the same course, the 15 is 3), but I like this course. It is hilly with lots of turns and is not likely to give you a PR. But it runs through the UCLA campus and is just an overall fun and scenic course. Although the hill that leads up to the finish line is particularly cruel. And since they run you right past the finish line once (for the 10K) or twice (for the 15K) you will get to know it well. The finish line and goody bag was very nice. Free donuts at the finish line and a very nice water bottle in the bag. Plus lots of free samples and such.
    Overall this was a very well organized race. They have a gear check which is always a great think. Lots of bathrooms also.

    In honor of a few friends who have succumbed to pancreatic cancer (Heather Stevens at age 38, Etta Shaftel), I try and run this event each year. It is always around Halloween time and always has a nice turn-out from costumed runners to research supporters. The 10K is two loops around a somewhat hilly VA course and the 5K is one loop. It is timed generously enough that one can run both races (I usually racewalk the second, which is the 5K.). Afterwards, there are booths with samples, as well as free bagels, apples, bananas, and more. Finishers’ medal and tech t-shirt (plus more swag for heavy fundraisers).
