- Road Race
This was my second time running this race so bare with me as I talk about the race some!
Expo! The expo had a ton of vendors and was very easy to get to as well. It was held at McCormick place, you walked up and was assigned a bib number as soon as they scanned you QR code, after that you went and received your jacket. Also to note you could’ve had packet pick up. I took a train down for the expo so I can’t help with the parking.
Only thing I am irritated with is being a slower runner is being placed in a corral where it’s nothing but walkers. From the start there were people walking. I feel like if people are going to walk at the start they should have a option and make a corral just for them so runners can’t get out and not have to swerve around them! Other than that I had a fun race! They had chocolate around mile 1.5 and plenty of nuun throughout the course! They also had marshmallows around mile 7 ish I think! I don’t really eat a lot of sweets one runs. Packet pick up went very well for drop off and pick up
They had plenty of goodies after and plenty of lines to go to to get more! Last year they ran out of fondue when i finished but this year they had plenty. I know I’m a run walker but it’s discouraging to start a race and be behind a Row of walkers.
