If you like small races and beautiful scenery, then this is the race for you. This is not a big flashy race and the cost is reflective of the size of the race. I have done a couple of the races Bill puts on. I liked both of them. Yeah, there are not a ton of vendors and the metals are not extravagant. However, there are no huge crowds, the water station are still manned, you get a nice tech shirt, and the people seem a little more friendly. I personally liked the small race. I will be back. Good job Bill, again.
