Barbara Sweet's thoughts:

Expo
The expo included booths of things not related to running or racing. It seems like they opened up the vendor space to anyone willing to pay the fee instead of focusing on what runners what would be interested in.

Swag
Swag included a t-shirt, medal, and a bobblehead. It was unique to get a bobblehead. It gives you one other thing to collect, especially if you are a Giants fan.

Course
The 5K course was flat throughout. San Francisco is known for very curvy streets, but not for this race. It went by the marina and turned around. The finish line was inside the stadium, which was the highlight of the race for me. What a great opportunity!

Aid Stations
There were two water stations for 5K. I would have liked the aid stations more reasonably spread out. It felt like you got water and then again you were offered water right away.

Atmosphere
There were a lot of families running and or walking. It was great seeing the orange and black colors running through the city. The races were staggered so there wasn't any pushing or slowpokes to wait for.

Post-race
After the race, there were some snack freebies to enjoy that included: carrots, yogurt, milk, pretzels, etc. There were non-runners trying to get onto the field, but the field was reserved for runners only. A great way to finish a race! There were also some photo opportunities spread out on the way out.
