In full: With just a couple of minor tweaks, this race would be fantastic.
Getting from the baggage pen to the start was more difficult owing to the number of non-runners present, so reserving that area for runners and volunteers only would be beneficial. There are a couple of pinch points at the start of the race and again at the end which meant running at the average pace, but overall the numbers of runners is about right. What wasn't right though was the lack of water stations - one at three miles and another at eleven was just not enough for we runners who prefer gels, and all that was needed was water as an option at an energy drink station.
However, I'm nit picking here. I really enjoyed the race and will definitely be back. Date of review: February 19, 2013
