    I agree…terrible
    The line to pick up my pre-race packet the day before was a two hour wait….
    During the race I saw people fall into potholes, run into benches and garbage cans
    People pushing double wide strollers, with their dogs, with their team of 4 walking side by side.
    I didn’t find any food, although they said there was going to be concessions.
    at least we have a tale to tell from it.

      Such a bummer. It had so much potential.

    And here I thought I was the only one who thought this race was terrible! I thought maybe my friend and I were taking this “fun run” too seriously, but it really was just a nightmare. We had to sit over an hour in traffic just to get there and then had to park pretty far away. During the race, we weaved around people (some of the stopped) who didn’t seem to care that they were in the way. I think the most disappointing aspect was that it wasn’t even the full 5k that we all paid for — my GPS watch said it was just barely over 2 miles!! I would seriously never do this “race” again.
