This year was the SL5's 40th anniversary, and the shirts were a super cute green to celebrate - along with a pint glass, bag, calendar, and of course - a medal at the finish as always! This is a busy race. Lots of people of all talent levels - you'll never be last here if you're running, tons of walkers. 2016 was particularly hot, unfortunately, but the course is well-supported. It is crowded - there are people at your elbows the entire way - but there are water stops at each mile, and friendly neighbors out on their lawns with hoses, too. This year there were bands and cheerleaders, to boot! There is a reason this race has been going for 40 years - it is well put together and fun. At the finish, you get a cute medal as well as subs, plenty of beverages, and snacks.
