    Pro: - nice spread after the finish line (Nutella, peanut butter, bagels, croissants, water, brown rice, grilled chicken strips, Red Vines, cookies, mini muffins, tortilla chips, salsa and bananas) - … MORE

    Pro:
    – nice spread after the finish line (Nutella, peanut butter, bagels, croissants, water, brown rice, grilled chicken strips, Red Vines, cookies, mini muffins, tortilla chips, salsa and bananas)
    – three friendly vendors giving away free samples of juices and a yogurt drink
    – easy bib pick up (day before or day of with no extra charge)
    – finishers’ medal, timing chip

    Cons:
    – the 5k was actually a 6.1k (3.8 miles). I’m not typically one to complain about the exactness of the distance, but come on! That’s a huge difference! I was trying to PR and pushed myself until I realized the distance was way off.
    – zero mile markers and one single water station that you pass twice. Fortunately I have a Garmin and I don’t really drink water when I run, so both of these weren’t a huge issue for me, but would definitely be for others
    – terrible path (bikers and runners shared the exact same space at the same time, not safe at all), really muddy, ran through an ugly foresty area where we were required to trample tall weeds and branches, way more uphills than downhills
    – the bike section of the triathlon were told they had to make 4 laps around the same small circle then hang a right… Lots of sharp turns for the bikers
    – very ghetto finish line made out of a few PVC pipes. At least decorate it (no banners, no balloons, no music, nothing at all)!
    – volunteers at the end were complete tracker Nazis. I’d rather hear ‘congrats’ and ‘good job’ than “Give me your tracker! Take your tracker off! I need your tracker! Return the tracker!” nonstop.

    I definitely would not do this again or recommend it to anyone.
