This was the first time I've run this race, although, I've run several other races put on by Pink Gorilla Events. You get the same type of awesome vibe and race experience with this as you do all of their other events - it's a true event, not just a race. There's loud music, a ton of energy and an overall "party" type of atmosphere.
Just like their other events, though, there are runners of all abilities. The winning time of this race is usually in the 32-33 minute range, but there are others running at so many different paces that anyone would feel welcome.
The course is mostly flat and built for fast times and PRs. The race starts at 7 pm, and many runners finish in the dark. It was really cool seeing so many headlamps coming up the hill to the finish corral - so much different than most races.
This year's weather sucked - it was 85 degrees at the start, but much of the race is shaded, so it felt much better.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this for someone looking for a total running experience!
