    I also ran this race last year. The race was pretty identical in terms of production, swag and course this year so that review has more details. It is a nice, scenic course in a small town outside Rochester. It’s pretty low-key and roads are not closed but no major issues. It was really hot and humid again so I was again super slow but I finished. I was again disappointed they only had pepperoni pizza at the end and no cheese or vegetarian option. The woman serving the pizza was also quite rude when I asked what kinds and she said just pepperoni and I said no thanks and I couldn’t eat a slice she made a rude remark. If I am free I may do this race again but that interaction did not make me want to return.

    This is a Wednesday evening 5K that is located in Honeoye Falls which is about a 20 minute drive from Rochester. It benefits Young Life which is a organization that provides activities, etc for teens. The race starts at 7pm which is nice so there was no stress getting there out of work. It starts in downtown Honeoye Falls and there was lots of parking. There was very limited bathrooms in the next door city hall. They should have had a few porta potties too. Packet pick-up was easy and included bib and shirt. The shirt is a fun tie-dyed T-shirt though not as fun as the tie-dyed shirt from the Earth Day Race I did. The race start was kind of a mess. The start was just drawn in chalk and at first everyone was at the finish line. It was chipped timed at the end but not the start. The course was quite nice. It went through downtown, passed by some water falls, went through some suburbs and farmland. Quite a diverse course for just 3.1 miles. It was moderately hilly but nothing crazy. There was a water stop in the middle. The course was easy to follow with volunteers and signs at all the turns. However it was open to traffic and while there wasn’t a ton of traffic there was some and there were no cones or signs announcing the race. I thought it could have been safer in that aspect. I ran this at a training pace since I am doing more races than training runs this month in my quest for 100 so my time was a little slow. The finish line had an arch and timing mat. At the end there was pizza, fruit and root beer floats. Since this race had a late start I was starving and couldn’t wait for pizza but when I got to the pizza there was only pepperoni and it was not because I was a slow turtle they only ordered pepperoni. I was so annoyed. I mean I understand you can’t cater to everyone and like gluten-free vegan pizza may be too much (although if you want to impress me with your post race food definitely serve gluten-free vegan pizza) but like I just wanted regular cheese. I was very surprised there was no cheese pizza. I can’t imagine anyone who would prefer pepperoni pizza would be particularly disappointed by cheese while there are people like me who don’t eat meat who are very, very disappointed by not serving cheese pizza and will take a sneaker off your race review. Also cheese pizza is cheaper. I did have some watermelon and a root beer float but I was still starving and had to run errands after this race. Ugh. Anyways it was a nice course and production was adequate. I am just still annoyed about the only pepperoni pizza. I’ll probably do this race again since its a weeknight and close by but I’ll remember to take snacks in case they don’t have vegetarian food again.
