Review of USC Quench The Fire 5K/10K by dmmovie

Posted by: on February, 8 2012

A really small race (there were about 80 people running the 10K) on a fast and flat course around Lake Balboa Park.

My only question/concern was the finish line was far away from the post race festivities. When I contacted the race organizers they told me to have the finish at the post race party would require the runners and walkers (some who were handicapped) to go up and down a steep hill at the very end.

Other than that I thought the race was well organized and a lot of fun. I hope more people turn out for it next year.
