    Wolfpack Event is a small organization, but they put on great events. I ran the 10k today at the San Pablo Reservoir. The race runs along the paved road and then after the 5k turn around runs onto the dirt trail. The course meanders through a wooded area and a pretty meadow. The course returns to pavement when it reaches the dam area. We run up the trail along the dam to the turn around and then return the way we came. The course was well marked, except for one section where I went off course. I realized it before I was too lost. It had been raining quite a bit the days before the race, so some sections were muddy and squishy. Aid stations were stocked with water, sports drink, and some gels.
    All runners receive a finisher’s medal and a shirt. Good variety of post race snacks.
    I finished third in my age group and received a medal for that.
    Nice rice and production. Will run again.

    I signed up for this race at the last minute, and am really glad I did. First, the entry fee wasn’t too bad, especially for someone registering the week before. Second, it was a pretty wet January, so turnout was pretty dismal which means I placed with a time that would otherwise have been unimpressive. It’s all relative. Also, just a shout-out here to the volunteers who had to stand in the drizzle for hours and somehow still managed to be super encouraging and positive!

    The race itself was clearly marked, with the first mile-ish on paved road, and the rest being trail. I almost exclusively trail run, and it was an obvious advantage with the trails being slick and difficult to navigate in places. Narrower parts made it tough to pass, but it wasn’t a huge problem with so few people! Other than that there was one or two steeper sections, but mostly it was a rolling course.

    Race organization was sufficient for the size of the event. I think with more people it would have been a little messier. It was tough to find some of the necessary tents- I had to ask someone where I could get a water 🙂 But everyone was super friendly, and while the swag wasn’t exceptional, I also didn’t pay a ton in entry fees. Which now that I think about it, I kind of prefer it that way.

    Would definitely do it again!
