Molly 's thoughts:

The BOMF 5-Miler has a lollipop out-and-back course that’s mainly flat except for a long, steady climb (about 100 feet of elevation gain, but it seemed like more), and a short, steep decline mid-race. The roadways were closed off, well-maintained (yay, no potholes!), and not noticeably cambered. I appreciated the scenery of the Schuylkill River and West Fairmount Park but would have enjoyed the race even more if part of it had run through a more urban portion of Philadelphia.

This race offers affordable registration fees ($25 early bird, $35 general, $40 late), easy and flexible packet pick-up, and ample porta potties. Plus, the swag was great for a small race (technical short-sleeve t-shirt and a BOMF spike bag). My only real gripe? Parking was kind of a hassle.
