Share your experiences with the 8th Annual Benefit 10K Run / 5K Walk for Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House below Back to event details page.
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 markers
always 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!
