Kim Prytherch's thoughts:

I’m super sad to write this review, and I’m hoping I can come back and amend it later.
We were offered a few times to pick up our bib and shirt in advance but then we were told last minute that the shirts were not ready so I held off and went last minute to get my stuff. They didn’t have my size and tried to give me another shirt but we were told they didn’t order any extras so I wouldn’t accept it. I didn’t want someone else to have no shirt because of me. I do this race for the shirt, it’s so cute! I was told that they would have my shirt a week later but two weeks later and I’ve heard nothing. Ugh. I have posted to their event page and will make changes to my review once I hear back.
Race morning was warmer than usual, but I didn’t bring a water bottle because it’s a 5k and they have a water stop. The water stop was at mile 2.2 ish. They had no cups left and the jug was mostly empty so they told me to hold my hands out and drink from that. It was maybe two sips worth and there were people behind me.
The 5k was well marked by the 20k course was not and several runners for lost and ran extra. The food was good but they ran out of some of it before the last 20k runner finished which made me sad for her.
This is usually a well run race but this year it was a dud for me. I will likely be looking for a different race for New Year’s Day 2021.
