It was flat and fast just like they said. A smaller crowd than anticipated but plenty of aid stations. Super nice volunteers!

Flat and fun

Two flat loops along the river. While running along the river you have the lovely views of the river banks and assorted wildlife. You will run through a fire station, twice, and along a road lined with emergency vehicles of all kinds with lights flashing - all for us. Flat course with good support. Love this race and the medals. For the past 4 years the medals have been emergency vehicles complete with flashing lights. Can't wait to see what it is this year.
