GREAT carefree race that is for the EXPERIENCE and fun.
Get a group of girls together and RUN THIS RACE with no expectations,
just a positive attitude.
Plenty of parking, I barely waited long for the bathroom, and Packet Pick Up was smooth.
If you’re going to have chip timing then you should at least start the 5k after the 10k, or vice versa.
IF I was running this competitively I would’ve been really annoyed… especially since we weren’t
that far back from the start and people were walking in front of us from the moment we
crossed the first chip time.
There wasn’t a TON of great stuff but the bag was pretty sweet.
I have yet to pull my shirt out but my friend Jen said it’s HUGE.
They gave two tickets for “bubbly” afterwards to everyone with a bib.
I am not a drinker (I held it for the pictures)
and drinking after running DEFINITELY does not appeal to me but people seemed to love it
which added to the fun.
Things I Would Change:
1. Different time of year OR different time of day.
I didn’t mind that it was on a Thursday but in June in NC, it was too humid.
It would be a better May or September race.
2. Chip timing in my opinion was not needed with the way they set it up.
HOWEVER, if they are going to chip time it start the races separately.
3. They didn’t give you wrist bands for the bubbly until AFTER the race
and the bubbly was right at the finish.
That meant you needed to bring your ID to prove you were 21 at the end of the race.
No one wants to carry that!
Have the ID check and wrist bands put on when you get your packet,
or set up a separate table for it.
And that’s that!
