The 2019 5k race was again a night race. It kicks off run weekend in Paris and it’s is a lot of fun
I planned to run with my patients, I was in A corral and they were in D so I had to drop back. Unfortunately this meant we couldn’t stop for any character photos as again like last year, by the time we set off around hour after the start the lines for characters was insane, like 45min wait times.
I’m not sure how it would have been if I’d started in A on the shorter race but they definitely had more characters out on the 5k this year than last year
The only disadvantage to the night race is your own photo quality. I have a pretty decent iPhone but with the spot lights and running in the dark my own photos did not come out well
The course was slightly different and I believe there was more time running in the park than last year which is great.
The theme was advertised as lion king with the medals etc but no lion kind characters out.
The medal was great, and I love the t-shirt. I’m a size 6-8 and ordered an XS and found this to be a true fit
I enjoyed the race, I wish the character lines were better organised so the lines were not as long, especially when you are paying for photo passes and if you are starting further back you essentially lose a race with photo opportunity but I understand this isn’t going to be a priority for every participant
