Bryan 's thoughts:

The race had a good spot on the south shore of the city that was easy enough to get down to, it was also a Saturday race which automatically moves it up a star for me.

The start was really well organized and there was plenty of room in the cultural center to warm up or do whatever you wanted. Plenty of starting groups that stayed organized so you were not bunched at all. It was very easy to get to and less chaotic then the downtown races are.

The course- on the South Shore was interesting at first looping through a nice park that I had never been through and there was some bands and such along the way. The last 8 or so miles though were basically an out and back on the lakefront path that was just ok for me. They did have some an Asian drumming group that was pretty neat near the turnaround.

I liked the t-shirt but the post race replenishing was pretty lacking.

All-in-all- it was a little pricey but worth if it fits your schedule.
