Overall the race was a great experience, especially for my first 10k. Lots of camaraderie amongst the runners and lively pre/post race activities. Due to the race being on the lake path, there was often confusion as to where exactly the turns were and which markers were meant to be followed. Some of the race volunteers seemed distracted by the runners going out and as a result forgot to guide the runners coming back after the turn around. Additionally towards the end of the race the 10k finishers run into the runners finishing the 5k, leading to some confusion/traffic. Dealing with the normal traffic of the lake path, and some of the divots in the path leading into Montrose proved difficult at times. The experience overall was a fun one and the post race award ceremony was put on well. Ultimately a good race if you are looking for a good test/work out, but not the best place to try and run a fast time.
