Review of Santa Anita Derby Day 5K by sourcesyndicate

Posted by: on May, 1 2012

Went to this race and they had a great expo with lots of fun stuff. The finish line is on the horse track in santa anita track so that is kind of novel and a new one. Running on the race track is kind of strange as the dirt is very loose and has a kind of loose feel to it.

after the race, the water and other stuff for the runners was kind of far away off the race track and through a very narrow gate which made it kind of a bottle neck. There was a guy there too saying there was going to be oranges at the end but I didn’t see any and was sore about that haha.

anyways a good event and lots of people – something over 5,000 i would guess
