I cannot say enough great things about this event! The 10k course is mostly flat and paved and runs along Fiesta Island in Mission Bay. Packet pick-up ( which includes a bib and t-shirt) has two options: either at Woodstock Pizza in PB the night before or the morning of the race. Parking is mostly street parking so the later you arrive, the further away you will have to park. This year I registered with my team (Stroller Warriors) and since we had so many members, we were offered two tents including tables, chairs and snacks. This made the day even more awesome because it gave us all a place to meet up before and after the race.
Water is offered along the course, however, there wasn't much course photography. After the race, we received medals and lots of snacks, beverages and swag! The event has so many vendors, as well as kids' activities with a bounce house. There is also a beer/wine garden where you receive one free drink and there is a live band to keep the energy flowing. Also, this event is well priced- I paid less than $30 for the 10k. However, fundraising and donating is encouraged since the race benefits autistic children and military families. I also like that there is a separate stroller division for timing and awards purposes, which just shows how much they really want this to be a family friendly event.
All of the volunteers and venders were super friendly and engaged with all of the kids in attendance. At one point, I lost my medal and one of the volunteers gave me a new one with no questions asked. It totally made my day! Most importantly, the event supports a great cause which is what drew me to this race to begin with. Overall, great course, great people, great price, great swag, and amazing cause! Two thumbs up!
