- 6 miles/10K
- Road Race
This was my first 10K, and I had heard great things from people that had run it in past years.
SWAG: There was nothing super out of the ordinary in our packets. Our tech shirts were awesome (they take great pride in their shirts), and feature Coke in a fun way every year. There was also an armband, a tattoo, and you could pick up a flat water pouch if you chose. Packet pickup was very easy.
AID STATIONS: PHENOMENAL. Every mile, there was something being handed to you. Nearly every mile had water. There were also miles with cold towels (a blessing) and popsicles (I was going to have a GU, but after being handed a peach popsicle, I had all the energy I needed!)
COURSE SCENERY: Beautiful. You run through some downtown areas of Corinth, and then run around the surrounding neighborhoods. There are hills, but they are gradual slopes (not going to lie, you will feel them in mile 4!) There are groups of people on every leg of the race cheering you on. Community support for this race was incredible.
EXPO QUALITY: I gave this one because there was no actual expo. They do have a dinner the night before for runners.
