5 / 5 Stars

Review

Small, well supported race. Everything about the logistics was easy - packet pick up, securing hotel, bus to start, minimal waiting time before start, accessibility of the finish line for family.

Race Tips

I ran with a pacer and it proved to be an excellent experience. I didn't have to think about anything, I just put one foot in front of the other.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

If you don't get a room at the race's hotel, all the downtown hotels are very close to everything.
