Great points about this race:
Massive amount of door prizes and you got to choose what you wanted when your name was called. Chances of being called for a door prize was very high since there were so many.
Indoor bathrooms. Indoor places to set your stuff, sit down and relax from the cold.
Plenty of food and water after the race
Water on the course
Well marked course
Police to lead the race.
Volunteers on the course to tell you where to turn.
Unique piece of pottery given to all winners in their age group and overall winners.
Some parking at the school so you didn't have to walk far to get your shirt.
You get a shirt and race number bib for your scrapbook.
Not so great points about this race:
It is a super hilly course, hills every 1/8 a mile it seemed so if you don't like hills or haven't ever trained on them, then this race isn't for you.
Whoever the volunteers with the water stop were, they were talking at the table to each other and not holding out the water. Both of my children running the 5K mentioned this same thing.
Both the 1 mile and 5K race are done at the same time so if you are running the 5K and your child or children are running the 1 mile race, you won't get to see them run or take pictures of them. :(
