Jenn 's thoughts:

The Beson Media Corporate Run is billed as the "World's Largest Office Party" - it's a way for you to run (or walk) with your coworkers. Most of the major companies in Jacksonville participate, and there is a big BBQ with free beer after the 5K.

Course: The 5K starts and ends at Metropolitan Park. It follows a pretty similar route to most downtown 5Ks, which includes a trip near EverBank Field. The course is pancake flat, but the views are a little dull.

Swag: Participants got a t-shirt and a bib. There is a post-race BBQ with free food and beer, which is a nice touch and a fun way to hang out with your coworkers in a not-work environment.

Logistics: My biggest issue with this race was trying to get to the start. There was a LOT of traffic - the Main Street Bridge was closed, and there were several other events taking place downtown. Combine that with the 6:30 start time, and it was a mess to get to the start. The race had been pushed back to 6:45, and while they announced that we were all emailed about it, I didn't receive an email or see a post on the event's FB page. Parking was also a pain, so I would recommend getting there as early as you can.

Start & Finish: There were two start areas - one for the top runners per company (top runners received points for placing), and the general start area. Team leaders were given wristbands for the top runners in their group.
