    This course had some hills! The volunteers on the course were great. The t-shirt was a long sleeved cotton blend. Plenty of parking, since the race started and finished at a high school.

    I’ve done this race a few times, mostly the 5k and once the half marathon and decided to do the 10k this time. It’s pretty much all the same as it results to course— nice neighborhood with lots of up and down (hills). I’ve never had an issue with their production or organization in the last 4 years, they do a good job. The kids run is really good for the little’s. Last year they upgraded their medals and the kids really liked it (probably .20-.25 in distance). Very family oriented.
    Overall their medals are really nice and very colorful and fitting for Thanksgiving. This race also has a great cause! I intend to do it yearly.
    (Oh– they even have Santa Claus– so great time to get your Santa pics in for free, although he tends to be late.)

    Hilliest race course. I’ve done their 5K a few times and that’s hilly. I decided to go for the half and it’s just as many hills. Neighborhood was pretty. Some came out of their homes and cheered us on. It’s a pretty course, just alot of up and down.
