Kim Maves's thoughts:

This is my third year running the Drumstick Dash 5k. Overall, this is a great race!

SWAG: Each participant receives a LONG SLEEVE COTTON T! I am a huge fan of long sleeve cotton t-shirts, especially in winter. This year was blaze orange. Also included in packet pickup bag is a Bobble Head from the 2015 Brewers season. (first 3000) The virtual goodybag has various vendors and a $10 off coupon for Sendik's. (local grocery store) My mom was excited about that one.

Aid Stations: One station about half way through, all that is necessary and just water. I did grab water today because I felt like it was necessary. Cup hand off was seamless.

Course Scenery: I love running around Miller Park. As always, it is a nice change up from the Chicago Lakefront trail, neighborhoods, etc. One of my favorite parts of the course is running on the bridge to get to the stadium grounds from the general parking lots.

Expo: Same as last year. A few cut outs to take pictures, Bernie Brewer, and the Racing Sausages were there. Other Vision events were there. I think you could sign up, but not sure. Performance Running Outfitters was also there, I think they were selling things for the race.

Elevation Difficulty: There is a GIANT hill (to me) and a few little rollers and it's an uphill sprint to the finish. Some tight Hairpin turns make it fun!

Parking: Super easy, free parking at Miller Park! Can't beat it!

Race Management: Vision is always fantastic! Volunteers were great.

Post Race Food was a banana, cookie, and bottle of water.
Miller Park is open before the race, you can go to the bathroom sit, etc.
First three men and women get an award.
Self-seed Run, Run with Stroller, Walk, Walk with Stroller

I know Feeding America was collecting food on race day. Not sure if there was any raffles or anything this year.

Not sure what could be improved. Last year they had Pace per mile signs up, this year they did not.
What is missing from this race (I am indifferent):
Age Group Awards, beer, and pictures. The only one I would probably want is pictures.
