Molly (6 years old) had a great time running the half mile sprint. One suggestion moving forward would be to have more time between that event and the start of the 10k. I would have loved to see her run her race, but i had to get to the starting line for the 10k. Overall, it was a great day, and we loved the event and cant wait to do it again next year.
I love this event. So friendly and fun, and the weather always seems to cooperate. The only hitch is the parking. The parking lot gets completely bottle necked and it can take more than an hour to exit after the event ends.
I've always liked this race. The people who work it are wonderful, the course is pretty and not too hilly. My only problems with it are really related to the traffic. There was a lot of it, and not all of it particularly friendly to runners, though that is not in the hands of the organizers. Nevertheless, a great run.
First time I've run in this event and I plan on coming back next year. Great job by everyone, well organized and lots of treats at the end of the race. Could use a few more porta-poties as lines were long before the race. Traffic is a hassel coming and going, but the event is worth it!
This was my second time running this race. It was a very nice race in all respects. My only complaint is the children's races. Parents and grandparents who run do not get to see their children running. Also, the children's race becomes quite unorganized because the parents are not there to get them set up. Both my grandchildren were put into the short fun run even though they registered for the 1/2 mile. They were quite disappointed. It would be so much better if the adults could run after the children's races are done.
