Never got any better

The course is beautiful, with plenty of bathrooms. That was about it. The swag was a copy of a magazine puplished last year, and a small plastic garbage sack as a drop bag! They didn't bring clothing down like they said they would. Finish line had very little. No real sponsorships. I've run much smaller cheaper races with better swag and a better finish line. They do offer several medals. Overall it was a disappointment for the cost.

Drop 13

This was the most unprepared race I have ever ran. Waited in line for over an hour to load the bus in the morning.

Overall, I was very unsatisfied with this race for the price I had to pay.

Never again

From riding the bus up (not enough buses) to chaos drop off, one cheap info magazine as swag in the swag bag, to crap food at the finish (people frantically putting together homemade peanut butter sandwiches)...I won't run this race again. Bad organization. Bad swag. Bad food at finish, bad support at the end.

Can you expound a bit. Bad does not help our feedback? We would like to do better but need your help or suggestions on what we can improve on outside of saying bad. We had ice cream, peanut butter san ...show more
