    I was scheduled to do this race last year, but had to defer due to injury. (Very easy to defer.) This year we were threatened by a storm front blowing through but it cleared just before the start. Luckily most of the parking was in covered garages very near the start line. The race organizers gave us good advance notice of the possibility of a delay due to lightning but none materialized.
    The race course is entirely residential through some posh Naples neighborhoods. Hydration stations (Gatorade and water) and portapotties were plentiful. Several out and back cul-de-sacs allowed you to repeatedly see friends both ahead of and behind you. Photos excellent although not free 🙁
    Finish line, medal, and post race great with free beer!

    So this review will be short because this race was cancelled. Race directors cannot manage weather but they can manage how they handle it.

    I was excited for this race. Florida; January; and 13.1 miles of fun. But unfortunately a huge storm came in; they attempted to postpone the race for an hour or so, and then eventually cancelled it.

    I am from PA- so rescheduling it would have been inconvenient, but it would have still given me a choice about what I wanted to do.

    My problem with this race isn’t that they canceled, it’s that they didn’t make right. No refunds. I understand they already spent some money on things, but no refunds- seems wrong. They offered us a 15% discount on the following years race. Again, no option to defer until the following year.

    The shirts were ok. Nothing special. I would never do this race again just based upon how they handled the situation after they cancelled.
