Want sure how much I’d enjoy this smaller race after Chicago but it was terrific! Organization was optimal and all of the volunteers and organizers were unbelievably friendly and helpful. The gift bag was unbelievable with a huge assortment of Garden of Life products. I’ve never seen anything else that compares.
The race course itself is really pleasant and fast with little in the way of hills. Can get warm but prevailing wind is from the east so there was always a nice breeze. Aid stations were plentiful and well stocked. Tangents are really easy to see and run. Plenty of parking. Definitely became one of my favorite races…
