Jessica Schaefer's thoughts:

This race exceeded all my expectations!

Registration was a very quick process and a printable paper registration was even available. I missed the early registration price, but it was still very readonable. Dogs could also be registered.

Leading up to the event, the communication was great! The Facebook page was very useful and had all the pertinent information easily available.

I went to pick up my packet the day before and was very pleasantly surprised with the process. There were lots of signs and a large window was even painted with the logo welcoming runners. The packet was actually a cute drawstring bag and included your antlers, number, some coupons, a long sleeve cotton shirt, and a mason jar with the logo...which I was really excited about! They were also selling other race gear for very reasonable prices.

Race morning parking was a piece of cake. There was a map in the packet and online and parking was clearly marked and there was plenty!

The race also started right on time which was great. The town is small and cute so there were lots of pretty Christmas decorations to look at along the way. The first part was very much uphill which was an interesting challenge and kept things exciting. There were lots of community members out cheering on the runners and even a man playing bagpipes. The whole vibe of the race was fun and festive. There were also two water stops along the course. It was pretty chilly out so I passed on that but it was a nice feature.

The finish was downhill which was awesome and I was so excited when I saw that they were making snow at the finish line!

We got stuck waiting for a train to come through before going over to the finish area. When we got there, there was plenty of water, fruit, and snacks from Panera and Fresh Market. They were also selling race merchandise again if you needed a hat or blanket to keep warm. There was a kid zone with inflatables and pony rides and, of course, Santa! We definitely took a picture with Santa.

Overall it was a great experince and I hope to be back year after year :)
