    I last ran this race in 2015. I haven’t run it since only because I always seem to be injured this time of year. This is a small, but fun, casual event. There is plenty of parking in the various parking lots surrounding Cedar Grove Park. There was even signage so you knew you were parking in one of the correct lots. . Packet pick-up begins at 1700 and the race begins at 1815. Each participant is given the choice between an event shirt or bbq. You can purchase an additional shirt or bbq for $5. The bbq included chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers. They had basic condiments, but no lettuce or tomato for the burgers. Everyone received a goodie bag with a surprising number of snacks and product samples. The vendor tables included Naked Juice, Suja, Ragnar, 360 shoes, and C4. There were also a large number of raffle prizes (I believe they drew around 50 tickets).

    The hilly 5 mile trail course was not actually 5 miles. In 2015, my watch said it was 4.75. This year it said it was 4.72. I was a little disappointed that in 3 years, they have not lengthened the course to a full 5 miles.

    The theme for the July race is “Christmas in July.” Participants were encouraged to dress up in their holiday gear. Volunteers wore 2017 Santa Run shirts (also run by Renegade Racing). As a hilarious touch, they gave out leftover medals from the holiday themed race.

    There were public restrooms in the park at the start. I would recommend the race consider renting a few port potties for future events. The line grew very long as the race start time approached. The two stall bathroom was not adequate to accommodate the number of people wanting to use it. Much to my surprise, there were port potties at one of the aid stations.

    Overall, this was a very fun way to spend a summer evening. I look forward to running one of these again.

    It’s a challenging course that has about a mile pretty flat before your climb. The climb to the ridge is not very technical, smooth and easy to run. It’s also pretty wide like a fire road
