Didn't meet expectations

Wow, my friend and I were so excited for this inaugural race and were very disappointed. The first part of the course was nice, but there were no cones to block the runners from traffic and no signs to inform drivers to be aware of runners. It was dangerous, we were constantly having to move onto the gravel on the side of the road to avoid being hit by angry drivers! There was absolutely no support of anyone patrolling the course during the race making sure racers were ok.

Sun full

Beautiful course with plenty of achievable challenges (hills) along the way. The only thing I would LOVE to see is a BIGGER medal. That's what I think a lot of runners like:) A BIG SUN or something similar would be great!!

Gorgeous scenery. Loved the course except the section along the main highway. Enough traffic that you needed to run to the left of the white line and the pavement there had lots of raised cracks. Small race was great. Great finish location. And the weather could not have been better for relaxing and watching others finish. One more portacan at start would have been helpful.

Beautiful Race but things lacking...

Beautiful run and the weather was perfect. It was a great way to escape the cold up north and come down to run in the warmer weather. Things that were lacking. I wish the swag was a little bit better to start. More portadumps were needed at the start and more heat to keep warm. During the race wish there was more support. Got yelled at by 2 cars and some cars don't slow down, but not a big deal. I'm one of the suckers that likes a big medal and would like to see a more creative/bigger design.
