Lessons Learned from Race Reports

  • Well-run, organized race and course – lots of positive reviews about the swag, the course organization and markings
  • Scenery and crowd support is a little sparse at times
  • Not a completely flat course, some rollers along the way, but still a fairly fast course
  • With it being a smaller race and starting the earliest, crowds aren’t much of an issue at the start
  • Some out and back portions, so you can see who’s ahead and behind you
  • Several races going on simultaneously, with runners and walkers, but for the most part, not an issue to have enough running space
