Review of Lexus LaceUp Running Series – Riverside by speedygonzales

Posted by: on December, 15 2014

Thought the event was great.
With the rain the day before, i was worried that the race would not happen, but got the email saying it would. Did packet pickup at the event site, which was really smooth. had to pickup the shirt afterwards, as they had alot of people coming in the morning and wanted to start on time.
The race did start right on time, which i did not expect given the rain issues.
The staff was great all around. course was well marked and plenty of flaggers out there – lots of people in uniform (natl guard or ROTC) – they were waving and cheering us on.
Post race, got a great brunch and beer (Sierra Nevada) that were included with the entry.
The medal was awesome and the shirt is great – one i will actually wear.
I hope to run this race again in Riverside next year.
Great Times!!
