This race was a huge let down. I had heard some bad things about this race in the past from friends. But since it was the 4th year for it, I thought they would have all the bugs worked out.
Things that I liked about this race:
-It was not a far drive. 10 minutes.
-My time improved from the last 5k. (22:55)
-girl at the registration was cute
Things that I didn't like:
-Car on the closed course with an upset driver
-the only awards were for the top male and female
-no age groups awards
-they started pulling the raffle tickets before the walkers were finished.
The course was so-so. Needed volunteers to keep the cars off the course or to let them off the course if they got there. Race was priced too high for what you got.
I had a good run. I focused on pacing myself this time. I showed a big improvement from the week before. There were not a lot of runners there. I know that I finished 12th overall, but the results are not posted yet.
I guess all in all, I expected a better organized race. Would I run it again? Maybe. They might just improve it.
