    This is a 5K or 10K race produced by Millennium Running. The location was in Portsmouth, NH so the location moved from when this was first added to Race Raves. Portsmouth is over by the seacoast. I was initially going to do the 10K but I made plans with my mom in Portsmouth right after the race so we decided to walk the 5K together. It was easy to change distance on the registration website. There is race day packet pick-up or you can get it before at the store. We did it race day. There was easy parking. It was rainy overnight with flood warnings so I think some people may have decided to skip the race but the weather was actually very nice and parking was so easy but I’m not sure it would be as easy if everyone showed up. Packet pick-up was easy and you are assigned a number beforehand. Along with bib you get a green polyblend shirt that is a nice shirt for a 5K. Race very well organized as expected from Millennium Running. The roads weren’t completely closed but there was a lane closed off with plenty of space. The course is a loop and 10Kers do it twice. The course though is really boring. It is all in a business park area. No scenic beach scenes but it’s relatively flat and there’s a lot of participants many in green making it fun. There is an aid station in the middle and one near the start for 10Kers with water. Finish line is set up well and all the runners are cheered on and announced when they finish. My mom liked that with the 10Kers doing 2 laps we were finishing with other people and not one of the last finishers. There is no medal which is pretty standard for shorter races in NH. There was a nice selection of snacks. I really like the dairy-free smoothies from Stonyfield which is a yogurt company based out of NH. Overall this was a nice race and a fun event but was not scenic. As it is close by and there are lots of challenges and incentives to do as many Millennium Races as possible I would do it again if I were in town but not necessarily plan around the race.
