Sign up is administered through run sign up. Easy is you have an account.
The Race Director communicates, to a fault. I don't think there was anything which was left out of the pre-race emails. This was both helpful and a bit over the top; but it added personality to the race.
I stayed at the host hotel with my family. I was really excited for a 10 am start! What was really cool about the 10 AM start for runners was the walking option at 8:45 and the run wall option at 9:45.
I think, if nothing else, the ability to run your pace at a race and not be rushed or left alone on course was fantastic. The scenery was spectacular as you roll through the lakes.
My only critique was the course isn't closed.
I can live with an open course, but I can't deal with drivers barreling down the road.
I saw signs telling motorists about the race, but on the course I felt there could have been more cones or directed running on the side of the road.
Post Race. Really net little finish chute followed by an absolutely fantastic meal catered by outback steak house! WHaaat
an award ceremony and just a really great feel.
Side note: The community really gets involved and the different restaurants offer discounts with your bib!
I think this is going to be my spring race. It was kind of fun! Low key enough not to feel pressured, but really fantastic amenities.
