Reviews
Average Rating:  
Recent Review: This was my first race ever, a 5k! And I thought it was well put together! I had no trouble following the route and it was a beautiful route. Part of the trail was flooded under one of the bridges, but they were sandbagging and pumping water off the path. We ran through some puddles, but I didn't even get wet. I would have felt good even if I had! I would totally do this race again! They should stagger starts though as there was a lot of congestion at the beginning and the 5k and 10k started at the exact same time.
