    This race has potential.
    I came from Toronto. The driving instructions were ok, but distances between turns might have made it a little easier.

    A few snags other for me.

    Not mentioned on website that price went up if registering onsite.The cost was more than my usual 5K limit of $40.

    Also no mention that no bag or t-shirt if registering onsite- although this is nothing new… however I was able to get leftovers..thanks much..thanks to the runner that also gave me her shirt(I collect run swag for charity functions.)

    No bag check. I worry about running with my car keys.

    I unfortunately didnt pick up the instructions to the party after so had to seek out advice(My fault, I dont know if it was in the bag as I didnt get one)

    The start was a little odd. Announced three minutes to go and then very quickly the 10 second countdown to the start. I overheard a few at the bar comment about this.

    Great chili, and enjoyed the Coors light..Prize handout was a little weird( everyperson for themsleves, but can’t complain as I scored a pair of shoes!!)
    Please fix the weather!!!HAHA pretty windy.

    Yes, I would recommend this race to a friend.

    Yes, I would consider attending this race/event next year.

    Lots of potential here, poor swag bag and a bit disorganized but the time of year, location and afternoon start has potential.
