Laura 's thoughts:

Overall/Race Management: A great race! Brian and Kenosha Running Company put on awesome trail events that are fun and informal. No pressure on these trails! Just pure enjoyment!

T-Shirts/SWAG: A SWAG buffet is offered - water bottles, fleece blankets, hats, and duffel bags are some of the items available. I grabbed a fleece blanket that Arthur curled up in when we got back into the car.

Aid Stations: The course was a loop so there was one at the split for the next loop/straightaway to the finish. Water was available.

Course Scenery: The race was at KD Park in Burlington, a little off the beaten path but KRC marked the road so it was easy to find. The trails seem to be well-maintained and there was a beautiful lagoon to run around.

Elevation/Difficulty: A few hills posed a challenge but they weren't unbearable or undoable.

Parking/Access: Plenty of parking available!

Packet Pick-Up is race day. No race-specific shirts are given out but you can order XC Thrillogy swag when you're registering and they will have it ready for you at packet pick-up. Post-race party had corned beef and cabbage, two port-a-potties, an organic dog treat vendor that is local to the area, and some fire pits to keep warm.

This was my first CaniCross event. The runners w/dogs were allowed to start several minutes before everyone else. It was great to be able to enjoy trail racing with my running partner!
