    This was a nice race to run. There were 5 of us that participated. The only major complaints I have, are that the people handing out that shirts gave one of our men a women’s shirt & our times didn’t get put in the results until 4 days after the event! There were other people this happened to as well. I noticed the 3rd place finisher in my age was not the same as when they handed out medals. Be sure to check your time if you think you finished well. The swag was good & the after party was also nice. Lots of vendors and people from other races. I would run this again. It was a fairly flat, fast course with nice scenery.

    Parking is unorganized, need to arrive early as most parking is street parking.
    The race ran on a trail around the lake, unfortunately this is a very popular trail for (sometimes rude) cyclist and other runners. This trail is not closed to the public. There was often only enough space on the trail for two runners to be side to side, which created frustrated cyclist and it difficult to pass slower participants.
    The after party included lots of vendors giving away freebies but it looked like the 5k finishers get to enjoy all the benefits while the 10k and 15k finishers put in more work. There was only one medal no matter the distance.
