A hilly walk but, it was nice. You all assume plus size people won't participate. Therefore; shirts only went to a large. Only 1 water station and that was at the beginning of the activity. It state pre-registration $35 showing no deadline date, but I still paid $40 because that was the only option online. When asked about the $35, they states if paid by sometime in November. I saw that no where on the site. Only $40 if paid day of. Advertisement must have been horrible. With you all having a university in the city, I thought it would be more people. I would have rather had a medal for my 5k accomplishment, rather than a suit
