The race organizers are great with communication and provide a lot of helpful tips and a training guide before the race. The expo was held in Fair Park over two days. My biggest complaint about this packet pickup location is that we have to pay for parking. The organizers make you aware of this before the race, but it's still frustrating. Race morning was chilly and perfect running weather. Unlike the expo, parking is free on race morning. I followed the tips on avoiding traffic provided by the organizers, but unfortunately it took me over an hour to get through the traffic and park! The 5k course circumvents Fair Park and isn't particularly difficult or very scenic. The plastic oversized mug you receive at the end of the race is filled with a cup of hot chocolate, banana, Rice Krispy treat, marshmallow and biscuits to dunk in the warm dipping chocolate. Enjoying the sweet chocolatey treat after a cold race is so delicious and rewarding!
