Review of Awesome 80’s Run – San Diego by Leah Williams-Harbach

Posted by: on October, 29 2012

This event was Horribly organized. Traffic was horrific trying to get in and so was parking. You had to park about .5 miles away. One cop directing traffic but that was it. I got there 45 mins early but barely made it to the start line by 7. They started about 5 mins late. Course was nice and flat but they only had one water station and no on on course, except for water station, helping direct at all. They also didn’t stagger start times so it was really crowded. Thankfully a lot of people were late or it would have been even worse. Superhero events seem to have really fun themes but not for serious runners.
