Review of New Years Race by fiveroses

Posted by: on January, 7 2013

I won a free entry for the kids run so I entered my 6 year old twins. I was very disorganized and hadn’t even picked up the packet for the kids prior to the race but the organizers were very nice and I had no trouble getting their bibs before the race. They gave out glow necklaces and bracelets before the race which made the nighttime race more fun. After the race the kids got cute little party bags and there were several bouncers and a few game for the kids to enjoy. We went down right after the race and the kids didn’t have to wait at all to get in the bouncers so they had a great time. My one suggestion is that they provide a well lit meeting area for kids and parents at the finish. My son ran ahead right at the finish and then got lost in the crowd. We were able to find him pretty quickly but it was a little scary for a few minutes.
