Best support I have ever seen! Aid stations had water, electrolytes, salt, vaseline, & first aid; so many portas! I felt so spoiled!
It was also supported with 3 high school marching bands which nearly made me tear up with sentiment & was so energizing. I’d choose band over a dj anyday. It made it feel like a true community event. Lots of folks came out of their houses with signs, cheering, & even snacks! A woman was handing out donuts on one corner, & a man with his very small son with popsicles! How great is that?! It was well organized with pacers. Well organized on the course. It was mostly beautiful, but unavoidably we went through some stinky sketchy areas. The hill at mile 8(?) was INSANE, but an awesome challenge for dedicated runners.
The metal is lovely!
I highly recommend! It would be great to travel to as it’s a wonderful San Diego experience but a must for locals who love the area.
