- 5 miles/8K, 13.1/Half Marathon
- Road Race
Parking for both the expo and the race were very easy and convenient (very close to the start line). The shuttle from the finish line to the "start" left us sort of far from the actual start line (at least it felt that way after running 13.1).
The expo was nice, with massages and compression devices available with short wait times. The overall energy was high and the photo opps (background posters) were nice as well, with helpful staff.
The race was fun and well-supported. It was also very well-organized. There were a lot of turns but it kept boredom from setting in, and I had never toured Rutgers' campus before so it was an interesting run.
They gave us our medals (and space blankets) as we crossed the finish line which was a nice touch. But, the food at the end was a good walk from the finish without anyone to instruct us where to go. The goody bag had a banana and a pretzel inside. Maybe it was the cold weather, but the pretzel was pretty hard, but at that point, I'm not sure it mattered much.
I would definitely recommend this race!
