    There were enough porta potties at the start. The race started on time. The route was beautiful. It was well marked, with plenty of volunteers at every possible wrong turn. There were enough aid stations. Throughout the race there were multiple loops with over 4000 feet of elevation. Just when I was feeling beat, we took a turn and ran about a mile with an ocean view. It was so uplifting–just what I needed. The race finished with a fast downhill, which is always exciting. There were plenty of friendly volunteers to help with any matter.

    The course was fantastic and I had a lot of fun running, but I don’t know if I would run it again. The biggest problem was that the race itself was way too crowded. I was surrounded by people from start to finish. The nice thing about trail running is that at some point the field widens and you get to enjoy a more isolated experience. Not the case, here. My second problem was probably related to the first. The penny pinching was extreme. They gave us one extra small water bottle with our BBQ and charged $1 for water. The beer was $8, and runners didn’t even get the first free. I’ve never seen a race that served beer that runners didn’t get the first one included. The awards were terrible. There were made of plywood with a die cut print. There were nice age group medals, but the age groups were in 10 year groups. Included with the fee, runners got a pulled pork sandwich and a very small salad. The little bit of food that you got was fine. There weren’t enough tables or chairs. I brought a lawn chair, but the 3/4 mile walk to my car was too much. My biggest pet peeve is unisex shirts. How many women will ever wear a unisex shirt in real life? If you are only offering a unisex shirt, then give a no shirt option. What race directors should understand is when people actually wear the shirt, it is free advertising.

    This is a good race, but it might be a one and done.
