Review of A Run Through Redlands by 262Nina

Posted by: on April, 27 2012

This was the first time I ran this race. For a small race it was very well organized, the volunteers were all extremely friendly, plenty of water stops. Parking was free and there are many places around to celebrate with your friends if you didn’t stay for the post race fun there.
Now for the race. I wouldn’t recommend it for first timers (I did the 1/2 marathon) it is hilly and on our day it was a warm one. 5 miles of a slow upgrade and some challenging hills too.
Next year they are trying for a technical shirt which would bring me back (runners dont wear cotton shirts!!)
The medal was nice too!!!
A few of my friends had a race PR on this course, but they are all veteran runners.
