This race has potential to be awesome, but is not quite there yet. First, the course is indeed flat except for one very large hill--not to complain, just wish they'd have mentioned that.
No mile markersalways a frustration. The start was very haphazardthey didn't make it clear when/where runners versus walkers go.
Running through places with a lot of cars, and at times, you were 2 inches from a car with no traffic officer in sight. Then, a football game was going on at the high school, and cars for that were in the MIDDLE of the home stretch
Lastly, they timed me at 30 seconds faster than I ran (not to complain...but) so their timing was quite off.
I do hope they can organize this much better, because it's very pretty and festive and I'd love to see it become a better event!
