What a great race. I did the 5k and had a blast.
We started on time. split into two waves, as there were 300+ in the 5k, which was smart – i went in the second wave.
There were tons of volunteers and good signage, i never felt lost. The aid station was well stocked.
After the race, i got the FREE brunch at the food truck. It was nice to have options (3 or 4 trucks), the steak and cheese quesadilla was awesome.
The band was fun while we ate brunch and then i got a stretch in with the Equinox people.
It was cool to get some snacks and water handed to us at the finish and the medal is great. I was pretty amazed at the quality and weight of it – it is even a coaster (i already have it sitting on my desk)!
They had computers and screens in the Lexus area where you could see your result right then and there. Needless to say, i did not win my age group, but those that did got these cool tiles.
I got a chance to take a pic on the podium. Hoping to see it turn up on FB!!
All in all, this was a great race experience. I hope they come back to Irvine next year.
I will be running in my race shirt this winter to help share the word about this race, as I love to see great races like this coming to town.
