Great course on the Cape! By the coast, mostly flat. It’s October by the coast, so it’s bound to be windy (25mph).

Pros:
1. Post-race food! A buffet of clam chowder and vegan soup, amazing apple cider donuts!
2. Free parking
3. Lovely spectators along the way
4. Flat course
5. Small field size, wide roads – I never had to run through a wall of people even in the first few miles like in other races.

Cons:
1. It was NOT a closed course. There were cars driving next to us the whole time. Had to look over the shoulder each time I switched running to the other side of the road.
2. Not enough signage. Could not locate the bib pickup or BATHROOM after parking. Could not find any volunteers in the area to ask for directions. The tents were hidden between buildings and signs were written in sharpies; made for a very stressful morning pre-race.
3. Not enough traffic cones /signs along the course. Almost missed a turn and went off course until a spectator told me.
4. Weather: This is out of anyone’s control, but the last 6 miles were very windy and difficult.
5. No race photos (not really a con, just FYI)

Overall a good race to do with friends but wish for better directions to the bib pickup/ bathrooms so runners are not frantic before the race!
