Minyee 's thoughts:

Given that this was their first time i give them lots of slack. Firstly bib pickup. Many of my friends felt that it was unclear that you could not have some one else pick up your bib. Other RnR races apparently allowed this. The expo was a big disappointment. I've been to other RNR races as well as other races of this size. I showed up at the expo looking forward to seeing what was new in the running world and ready to spend money. There was basically nothing to buy and no vendors. Saw dome RNR tees that were nice but $50 is pretty ridiculous even for a tech tee. Other big races charge around $35.

Day of race i heard a lot of grumbling about parking. Being within driving distance of nyc i knew that unless you paid more for a guaranteed spot you can easily be out of luck. Not the races fault. People need to plan around parking in nyc.

Having done many races I don't know how RNR could have underestimated the number of portapotties required. Lines were long!

Then the security line was super long. There were not enough security to screen this number of racers. And it seems like many ppl did not know you could not run with bags and packs. Ultimately i think because it was taking too long they basically let everyone just walk through.

The race itself was great. I loved the course. Music was wonderful though i wish it was louder in spots. I know that was due to local restrictions which was too bad. Loved the performers in stilts and the cheerleaders.

The medal and tee were great. Post race snacks were great but it was a bit crazy getting everything. Hardly any trash cans meant garbage piled all over. No cell signal or maybe it was overwhelmed meant it was really hard to meet up with friends and family.

Did not stay for the concert. It was cold! And I wasn't adequately dressed. This race has potential and a great course. It has some problems to work out and i'm hoping next year will be much improved. I'm already signed up! #HF12739
