Jamie 's thoughts:

I thoroughly enjoyed this race! the start time was not too early (9) and it was easy to get to Stanley Park, although we did take a Car2Go and forgot you can't park them there, so my gf moved it onto Georgia st while I went to the pavillion to get ready to go. (She was volunteering, not racing)
The "bag check" was basically an unmanned cloak room where you could stuff you belongings and hope they were still there after the race, but since most smart runners don't bring valuables and it was a small race with lots of volunteers, I went for it and my stuff was safe and sound when I came back after my run.
The race shirts were really nice, didn't fit me the way I'd had liked but that's pretty common for me (extreme long torso..grr) and the medals are simple but nice and a good size (hate when they're puny haha)
Stanley park is a beauty place to run. The couple water stations didn't have that many volunteers, it wasn't a huge problem but a couple more would have been better.
The Stanley Park pavillion is an awesome place to start/finish the race because we were able to stay warm inside right until the start basically, and that was good because it turned out to be a chilly weekend and there was even some hail as I was running the last 5km of the half marathon!!
Great race, would absolutely do it again, and I thought it was an overall successful event and I've registered for another event organized by the same people (@wwwTRYEVENTSca) in March, the hot chocolate run!
