    I was on call this weekend so I was looking for a short, live, local race within an hour drive of Rochester and this one fit the bill. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this race. This race is produced by Wolfpack multisport which is a smaller racing company that I don’t know that much about that produces mostly triathlons in western NY. Overall I was pretty impressed with the race and the production was better than I expected. The race is located in a very small town inbetween Rochester and Buffalo in honor of a local man named Wayne Burlison. This year, the race had waves every 10 minutes from 1pm to 1:30pm. This was kind of weird timing for me with rounding and eating but did mean I could also do a 3 mile run this morning with my local running group, then round at the hospital and then run this race. It was a little difficult to time eating so I had a medium sized breakfast just before rounds and ate lunch after the race. The race started at a school and had raceday packet pick-up. Packet included the bib and the swag item this year was a pair of gloves with the race name. It was okay swag but this is a cheap, short race that raises money for charity so I don’t need much swag. The start of the race was well organized with small waves. It was chipped timed with timing mat the finish but no timing mat at the start but the waves were small so you pretty much passed the start at the same time. The course was a lollipop loop along a pleasant enough rural street and then went through a loop in the cemetery. This seemed kind of morbid for a memorial race especially as you apparently pass by Wayne’s gravesite but I wasn’t really reading the tombstones as I was running through to confirm this. My dark sense of humor got a kick out of running through the cemetery for a memorial race. I hope Wayne’s would too. The course was actually on the tougher side for a 5K with lots of rolling hills especially in the cemetery but I was really fast today. I was close to a sub-30 finish which surprised me since I already ran 3 miles earlier today. The course was also marked extremely well with cones, direction signs and arrows and lots of volunteers. The finish line looked nice with a big arch but there was no medals and only water with no other snacks. Oh well again it’s a 5K that goes to charity. I had a good time at this race and it was better than I expected. A few improvements that would bring it to 5 sneakers would be earlier start time, timing mat at start, and some post-race snacks. I would definitely consider doing this one again if I was in town and I actually decided to sign-up for one of Wolfpack’s events in the fall for my first triathalon since I enjoyed this event and it is a “paddle-bike-run” triathalon and I don’t swim.
