Organizational Effectiveness:

This is a large event with hundreds of runners. It's very easy to register and the same-day packet pickup is steps away from the starting line. Afterwards feel free to be pampered by top sponsor booths with free samples of health bars, breakfast tacos, vegan juices and even free running gear.

Trail/Course info:

There are two hills to tread up during the 5k while enjoying the modern downtown view.

WOW factor:

The traditional drummers at the finish line was definitely the wow factor of this run. Click on the video below to see for yourself!

Super duper special running mates!
