Fun event. Disappointing that my timing chip seems to have failed. My results aren't posted and I'm not sure if it's due to the fact that there was only 1 B-Tag on the back of my bib instead of 2 like every other race I've run this summer. Still plan on running it next year though.
Hello, Very pleased with the race and all the support given....with one exception: there were bikes flying around 30 m/h on the trail that came close to me and I would be surprised if there were not some accidents.
Besides that it was great....thanks.
My husband and I ran this event, and enjoyed the run and would do again. I have two suggestions for future events, one is that the technical t-shirt size should be more specific. The tech t-shirt was for a man and even the men's small was too big for me. I also overheard people complaining that they received a t-shirt instead of a technical t-shirt. While registering for the event, there was an option to check to pay $5 more for tech tshirt, otherwise receive a cotton t-shirt. I suggest that only 1 type of t-shirt be offered (technical is the best) as well as offer sizes appropiate for men and women.
My second suggestion is to provide a more substantial snack after the run. Bagel pieces or fruit would have been better than pretzels and granola bars.
This was the first year of the event, and I'm sure these minor issues will be fixed for the next one!
Overall, nice event, route, and medal...would definitely do again! Oh yeah, and the volunteers were amazing! No race would be complete without the time and effort these volunteers devote.
I had a great time at this race! I thought the race was VERY well organized, from the multiple water stations, to the multiple volunteers handing out the finisher medals at the end of the race. The volunteers along the route were enthusiastic and fun. The finisher medals were awesome ? seriously, how cool were these!? A few suggestions to make this race even better: Gatorade, better post-race snacks (bananas, bagels?), more photographers, technical t?s. Overall A in my book and looking forward to next year!
THis was my first 10K race, I did great, better than I thought I would. I am so motivated to run more 10K and try for a half marathon, maybe next year! I loved the route, the scenery kept my mind off of talking myself into walking! LOL!
I liked the event a lot except for the tight constraints at some points during the run. It was difficult to pass people at some points for quite some time which made my pace a little slower than I wanted. Other than that, the medal looks great, the music was pretty good and everything ran smoothly.
It was a great event, and it was my first 10k, it was really hard not to look at the beautiful scenery along the path. The beginning of the race was very crowded as we ran the sidewalks. Also, as we ran along the main race path, there were a lot of bikes and joggers trying to move around all the runners. The volunteers were amazing! I can't wait for next year!
