As a previous reviewer indicated, the awesomely groovy medal caught my attention. I picked up my packet the morning of the race and it was easy-peasy! In and out without long lines or hassles.
The pre-race vibe was nice with lots of family and kids (the two and four legged kind). I would have brought my pooch if I wasn’t driving from L.A.
The course was less than desired. The course was described as running near the water and they weren’t kidding! A lot of the course was run on dirty trail and, at some parts, SAND! Some parts of the course were very narrow with a fence on one side and large rocks on the other. The round about through the park got a little boring – it felt like we were all running in intersecting loops.
Lots of water, bananas, and snacks were there to replenish us after the race.
The water stops were adequately spaced and the volunteers were fabulous!
What saved this race for me was the great medal, and the cool pre and post race festivities.
