Kim Prytherch's thoughts:

I ran this race as a BibRave Pro.
The race had crazy good communication leading up to the race. So many emails and posts to their event page, with all the pertinent details.
The expo was smaller this year but still smooth like clockwork. Bib pickup was a breeze, next was legacy swag (mug, chocolate, and bonus medal) and then the cozy hooded jacket. I’m bummed they didn’t have thumbholes this year but that’s totally a first world problem!
Oh, and I had to bump down to the 5k a couple months ago and the process was smooth and easy. So simple!
Race day I parked near the convention center due to after race plans, but there were tons of places to park near the finisher village. Easy peasy.
The race started on time. It took us about 9 minutes to get to the start since we were last corral, but it’s chip timed so that doesn’t matter.
The race was super hilly. This is expected for any charlotte the so no surprise there. Lots of neighborhoods and it finished up running back into Charlotte which is always beautiful. The last half mile is all motivational signs which I always love.
There was one water/Nuun stop which also had chocolate although I almost missed it! That would have been tragic!
The finish was well organized, although somehow I managed to finish along with some divas who hogged the cameraman so no feee photos for me! I have to be more aware next time!
I got my water bottle, bling, and headed for me chocolate mug. This year they were heavy duty compostable cardboard. Love it! We are our yummies and there were some photo opps as well.
Great race and run very well! Looking forward to year 4!
