Elizabeth Bain's thoughts:

The single star is because the race swag is supposed to be a Portland Thorns (pro soccer) scarf. But this year the Thorns pulled out of the race just days before it took place, and yanked the scarves, too. It would have been quite easy to have them for pickup AFTER the race, and any number of local running stores would happily have helped.

Kudos to race management for doing some crazy last-minute rejiggering to hold the event, after the white supremacists announced they were going to "rally" downtown.
