Review of Newport Mesa Spirit Run by Run4Fun

Posted by: on March, 4 2012

The Spirit Race was on a day with perfect weather! Everyone seemed very upbeat and happy. Pre-race
wasn’t as easy to find as I thought it would be, but there were lots of police officers to guide us in the right direction. I was a little confused on where to go for my race’s starting point since many races were starting at all different times. Registration for late runner started very early at 6:15 in the morning which gave people plenty of time to jump in on the fun last minute. I don’t think anyone cared much for the flat course, but I did it for the cause and a good workout. Even my 1 1/2 year old had fun afterwards. There were tons of exhibitors, music and kid friendly handouts. Overall, easy family event. Not a very competitive vibe.
