- 3 miles/5K, 13.1/Half Marathon
- Road Race
This is my second 131 Event race. The first race I did was a Christmas 5k which was great. If I understand correctly, the company is based in Indy .... and they are new to the Phoenix area. (PS Welcome, we're glad to have you here!)
This race was much better organized than the xmas one. There were EIGHT water stations, which for Phoenix in the summertime, is essential and smart. The one thing I wasn't sure of was the 7am start time. People from INDY may be able to start a half marathon at 7am. However- here in Phoenix, valley of the sun, I would highly recommend an earlier start time based on my own experience as well as in talking with many other (very overheated) runners.
The parking was great - the expo was small but well-run and it went quickly. No identification was required to pick up packets which was interesting - but the lines went quickly, the volunteers were super friendly.
They had great snacks after the race - and all the photos were free uploads.
I'd recommend this race to anyone looking for a fun time. The bling from 131 thus far has been AMAZING - large medals that are just FUN. I will definitely run another 131 race and would encourage others to check them out - they have virtual options as well. Fair price and a great time!
