    As always, Brazen Racing put on a well supported event.  I brought along newbies for the 5K and they both had a great experience.

    I will continue to participate in their events throughout the year.  Thanks!

    Re: Coyote Hills Half Marathon/10K/5K Reviews

    It was my first 5K event and I have to say it was the BEST way to start out. The event could not have been organized and executed any better. The course was challenging but still fair enough for the average person to complete. The staff were very nice and helpful and the vendors who provided food and services were phenomenal and best of all we received metals and a great tee shirt that I would actually wear and all for a mere $41.00. I felt I got a great experience and will be one of your biggest advertising vehicles to anyone who is considering doing something like this. I couldnt be happier with the experience and when we woke up this morning we could not wait to run again....

    Five Stars Baby!  Brazen was very hyped up and it lived up to all the Hype.  First class act all the way.  My first Brazen race will not be my last!  Keep up the great work.

    Had a great time.  It was my second Brazen race and just as good as the first one.  Very well organized.  Plenty of aid stations along the way and at the end the food and drink were great.  Great value for your money

    If you are thinking of running a trail event make sure you check out Brazen Racing. This was my third race with them. Organized, energized, always a great day with Brazen.

    A well run race. Great course, well organized. Shuttles were OK, but could be improved with at least one more bus.  Better signage would have eliminated traffic jam at park entrance since shuttles were many blocks away.  The course had some bad tripping hazards that should have been corrected before the race.

    Great event. Fantastic location. Brazen did a wonderful job. Just need larger shuttle buses for this one.

    Re: Coyote Hills Half Marathon/10K/5K Reviews

    The race was a great event, with a slightly rolling wide trail and spectacular views of the bay and marshland. I liked the sweats check-in - that's the first time I had that service. As others have said the race organization and the volunteers were terrific. I took good advantage of the terrific food offerings.

    My only thought about possible improvement would have been that since the organizers expected to need overflow parking, they should have had better signage at each of the major intersections to direct cars to those lots. The number of buses was minimal, but to have had more would have been over the budget. (I only take off a half point for the traffic/parking situation because the rest was so great.)

    Brazen Racing does a great job with their events. This was my second Brazen 5K. They are well organized, friendly, and are great about supplying useful information about their events. The medals are a nice touch. Plus, they always have It's Its when you finish!

    Flawless organization by Bracen, beautiful course along the shoreline. From music, to food, to finisher medals, just perfect. For a 1000 plus runners event, these guys know how to oraginize an event. Was my first race with Brazen, i'll defintively will register for all upcoming Brazen races.
