Nia 's thoughts:

The last time I did a review of this race, I was disappointed in the overall event. There were a lot of organizational flaws, but they sure did clear things up for todays race!

There were two options for packet pickup. The evening before the race, and the day of the race. I took advantage of the day of pickup, there was a 2 hour window (1pm-3pm) to pick up your bib and race shirt. And the pickup window ended an hour before start time. Which was nice because there was enough time to stretch, warm up with the fun zumba instructors and mingle a bit before the race began.

The race started out right on time, and we ran on an out and back course. The course wasn't paved the whole time, there were a few spots where we ran on grass and gravel. But that wasn't a big bother really... The view or running along the harbor was absolute perfection. There was one water station, at about mile 1, and then on the flip side on the way back. Looking at my watch, the course was a bit longer than a traditional 5k, off by .2. Wouldn't say that it bothered me much, gatta love extra miles.

At the finish line, you were given a medal, and one cup of wine with your bib ticket. There was a good variety of wines between red and white wine. It's always nice to be able to pick your favorite! As the party went on, the music was blasting, and everyone was having a good time.

Unfortunately, the weather was a bit unpredictable today. It sprinkled a bit, and rained hard about 45 min after the race started. I think the weather affected the turn out, there weren't as many folks this year as there was last year.

Overall, this race was awesome. Great course with amazing views, good music pre and post race, and cute race t-shirts and cups to take home. Looking forward to running this race again next year!!
