Review of Seal Beach 5/10K by Caroline

Posted by: on February, 29 2012

I did the 10k
Easy packet pick up..race morning
no medal
cotton t-shirt
the course is ok…gets windy in some sections…what was not ok was the start. Madness..
They had the 5K and the 10K starting at the same time. They had waves but it was clear people were not paying attention to the signs
Strollers in the first wave, walkers in the first wave… dogs in the first wave…
Walkers were supposed to start 10 min after the runners but a lot of them were in the front. Took almost a mile to get out of the jam.
Will not be back for this one. Going to Redlands this year.
