This was a VERY hilly, but beautiful course. The vineyards and the hot air balloons were a very nice site. Packet pick up was pretty easy and the parking was great – no need to shuttle to the start race or walk 10 minutes to the start. I could have used more water stations. But, got lucky that one of the residents left out a case of water in their front yard for runners and I was able to grab a water. I was disappointed with the post race. They ran out of water and we didn’t get any water. I paid $10 for the post race wine/beer tasting and after standing in one of the lines for wine, they ran out. I then stood in another line for beer and by the time I got to the front, they had run out! Other than this, it was a great hard run.
