    Re: Americana Festival 5K Reviews

    this was my 2nd year running this race.   it's nice to have the parade watchers cheering you on.   Would like to see course changed up a little each year, although with all the people parking in the neighborhoods for the parade it may be difficult.  Didn't care for color or cut of shirts this year.  they were a little snug and they ran out of shirts way before the race so I couldn't trade like I did last year.  The post race snacks were better last year...warm water and bagel halves are not very appealing after a race!   last year there was a protein drink and energy bars.   As others commented, couldn't hear PA at all...only knew race started when people in front of me started moving!     Not sure if I will do this next year or find another.

    It started with a dead speaker and few heard the National Athem.  Was there a gun to start the race; not at this race.  If you were up front you heard, "GO", maybe.  What was your time at mile one, mile two and three, opps, no marking of the miles.  Why can't a race of over 1,000 people get a decent race director?
