Solid Race

A good 5K for PRS, it is mostly flat with one fair uphill which is met with an equal downhill a bit later in the course. Besides some quick turns which can slow you down a bit, it's a smooth all-road race which will allow to run some fast times. There is a clock at mile 1 and 2 to help with pacing. My PR on the course is a 16:50, hoping to grab the course record (like 15:40) sometime in the next few years!
