Great race. not too big, not too small. Unfortunately, I received a parking ticket along with several others. I parked across the street from the race. Ironic to receive a parking ticket from TPD when we're running to support TPD.
Great little run - The price is right, shirt was quality, and charities who benefitted were terrific. I loved the coffee after, but a true chip time versus gun time would've been great, as mentioned by someone else. Unfortunately, I also got a parking ticket because I assumed the city wasn't metered on Saturday mornings. Pretty cheesy, City of Tampa.
Other than the chips being meaningless, EVERYTHING was awesome!! But if you are going to have chips, and people are running for times, then you should have accurate chip times. Mine was also off 40 seconds. But everything else was top notch!!
I had a great time. I love small events. I would do this again. I didn't get a ticket and I do wonder if this was a mistake for some to be cited! I think it was well organized and the view for the run is amazing. I didn't time myself so I don't know if my chip time was inacurate. I do know that my GPS said the total course was 3.4 miles.
This was my third tie running this race and I love the size, location, ease of parking and the availability of REAL restrooms! I only have two suggestions: start the race an hour earlier and post the chip times in addition to the start/gun times. It appears that I am not the only one who believed the times were off!
