I love Berkeley so of course I loved the course. But the race was extremely disorganized. I biked over because there was a "bike valet" advertised. However, there were no volunteers even watching the bikes! Literally anyone off the street could come and take a bike. This is not a bike valet, this is bike parking.

There were not enough toilets at the beginning -- I waited approximately 20 minutes. When I left the porta potty was also almost out of toilet paper.

The finish line was a total zoo. They had only grouped bags for the gear drop in groups of two thousand. This made for long lines and long waits to retrieve gear.

I'm hoping this is an off year because I'd love to support Bay Area races like this. But this was hands-down the most disorganized race I've ever been to.
