    this was an awesome 5k run/walk event. great organization, great volunteers, and most importantly, great cause as we participated in the race against pulmonary hypertension.

    the pros:
    -perfect race day conditions, mid 50s and sunny. although some may say this was a bit on the warm side.
    -mostly flat course through stanford’s campus, passing through several key university landmarks. since it was a loop, start/finish area was the same.
    -correctly measured course, which is much appreciated given the number of short/long 5ks out there. i got 3.11 miles on my garmin so i knew this was measured properly.
    -free and easy parking in lots right next to start/finish area
    -race started next to stanford’s track, so we were able to warmup and cooldown before and after the race
    -porta-potties and restrooms (at tennis center building) available
    -flags to mark each mile in the race
    -friendly volunteers directing runners along the course and handing out water

    what you get:
    *choice of packet pick-up @ fleet feet sports in menlo park the day before or on site pick up the morning of
    *burgundy coloured long sleeve finisher’s shirt (very appropriate for a november race!)
    *TONS of post-race food & drinks, including muffins, bagels, cheese, bananas, freshly-cut fruit, pretzels, chips, coffee and water. i was amazed at how much food was provided given the large number of participants.

    the cons:
    NONE!

    i highly recommend this race to first-timers and veteran 5k runners alike. i will definitely sign up for this event again next year.
