Christine Guenther's thoughts:

4 Miles 4 Water's first annual race was this year. Multiple things going on with the race so here we go:

Registration/packet pickup: all done race day, something a tad different than other Hermes events where you can pick up early. Mostly because we were trying to go for a world record (most people walking a certain distance with a water jug on their head) so everything was handed out day of. Glad I got a water bottle instead of a shirt

Guiness Book of World Record Attempt: Most people walking a certain distance with a jug of water on their head (at least 20 oz and you can't drop it)- previous/current record was 475 people. We may have convinced park peoples to join in to help us with this one!

The race: first 2 miles were a mile loop and decent. Along the bike paths and Lake Erie. Mile 3 starts off by going up a ridiculous hill that was painful followed by a mini loop. On the way down the hill you had the option of grabbing a gallon jug of water for the last mile to see what it's like lugging your water for the day with you for a mile. Last mile was a reverse loop of miles 1 and 2, finished in the grass

Post race: food trucks, music, bananas, oranges and a beer garden. Enough Said!
