    The Half and 8K start together. The Half people split from them after the 5k mark. The description of the course never mentions the Tough Challanging Hilly Terrain. They have a map, but no elevation maps of the courses. They should, so people can decide better, if it is a course they want to attempt. Age group awards are only cheap glasses. The donout man lied about running out of donouts. He gave up a few to the early 8K finishers, then reserved the rest for the Half Finishers. We had registered in time for shirts, but when we picked up the packets race morning they “stiffed us”, running out of our sizes. Otherwise, everyone was friendly and you got nice finisher medals.
