Thievish the first year I decided to do the race and I did not regret it. It is a fun neighborhood race that is flat and fast. It suits people looking to run fast or have a good time with family and friends. I did like how they people line up by times they thought they'd finish. The course is well marked and staffed to alert you of the speed bumps on the course. A common complaint I've heard are all the turns on the course.
I don't know about parking because I ran there. Packet pick-up is very low key and bibs are assigned there.
