Beautiful, fun course!

We loved this race from start to finish! The race director was super enthusiastic and friendly. Everything was so well organized and the course was beautiful. Mostly flat and the roots were all marked - so helpful. We had a lot of fun! Lots of prizes and a great tech shirt. Hazelnut coffee and nice bagels afterwards. We will run this one again!

Boundary 5k

The course is well marked but challenging in the highly shaded wooded areas with roots. The grass is high in the final field but all in all this course is mostly flat and fast for many good runners and i think fun for all.

Fun Run, Short Course

The course is pretty and mostly flat but more like 3 miles than a full 5k. PROS: Enthusiastic directors and sponsors, cool t-shirts and prizes, nice course. CONS: Short course, splits are off, not enough bathrooms for a large crowd, course retains a lot of water (dirt becomes mud, grass becomes slippery) so watch your step if it's been raining. Overall not a bad race to try once.
