A very fun race , but definitely a cold 21 degrees
I know this was their first race to host and organize and yes it must be hard to get it all together! My only advice is have port-a-potties available, packets ready with names on them and at least one water stop at the half way point. This is just my friendly advice, more props to them for doing it!
