This race was pretty flat and some parts of it were scenic. I came about 1 hour before the race start and there was plenty of parking right near the race start. I picked up my packet on race day and got everything. I liked the tech t-shirt and bag. I liked the wave start because the path was not that big. There were plenty of volunteers and aid stations. They also gave away some free swag at the end of the race which was pretty cool. Overall, it was a great experience.
