Beautiful Course

I run this race every year. I train for other races on this course because it is so scenic and mostly downhill, but not steep. I plan on running this race every year. The finisher's medals are always my favorite as well as my kids. Thanks for doing this race every year!

I am usually not impressed...

But this race was exceptional. So well organized, beautiful weather, spectacular course, friendly volunteers, DINOSAURS EVERYWHERE, and I got a PR. 5/5!

Great Dino race

Everything was great about this race - shirt, medal, course, race support, people, and even the weather cooperated. I'm planing to drive out from Colorado to collect the next dinosaur medal next year (I just have to remember to slow down on the steep downhills).

Dino 5K - Great Family Experience and New Family Tradition

This is a fun run for our family. In 2018, 2 of us ran the 5K. In 2019, 9 family members ran. In 2020, we hope to have 12 run the 5K and 3 younger children run the Kids Dash. <p><p> All of us had a fun time. The 5K was very well organized. The shirts and the finish medals are great. My grandchildren were super excited to receive the finisher medal. <p><p> One grandson had the fastest time in the 10 and under age group. He was excited to get a gold medal. His cousins have now decided they want to win a medal and beat his time. It should be fun to watch them next year. <p><p> We have decided that the Dino 5K is great family tradition for us. We hope to run it together many times. <p><p> Special kudos to the Runtastic crew that helped resolve registration issues and made everything run smoothly.
