Review of Hot Buttered Run by Amanda Daley

Posted by: on December, 20 2012

The only reason I gave this course a B and not an A was the 1st wave of the race was lead in the wrong direction! We ended up going a second loop around a parking lot and it equaled to be about a half mile longer than everyone else and the actual 6.2 mile course should have been. Once we competed the second loop we were thrown in the back of the pack to have to weave around slower runners/walkers. That was a little distracting, but that aside it was the most well thought out race I have been a part of! Lots of hype, awesome decor and great vendors made the pre and post run a lot of fun.

The course took place starting at paradise point and looped all around through mission bay and ski beach. It had gorgeous water views the entire route. There were 2 water stops with a great cheer crowd.
Included with your average priced 10k entry was a awesome designed long sleeve tech T and a hot buttered rum at the finish. My kids participated as well and they got long sleeve cotton T’s and a medal for just $5!
I will definitely be back next year! My family and I had a great time!
