2017 Race Review
Review On:
Very organized and a great course

The race was for a good cause, suicide prevention. The 5K trail course is paved, flat, and shaded. Easy parking. Very low sign up fee, nice shirts and fruit, cold water, and chocolate milk at the end. Nice medals for the extremely fast winners. I would race this again.
