    The race was very unorganized. There was a lack of correct signage at the start and many people went the wrong direction because a sign was left up. The starts for the marathon and half were over an hour apart. WHY?? Obviously it was not to give them time to set up the aid stations or change the signs. The race also started at 8:15 for the marathon runners. I get that this race used to be later in the year, but since it was moved to August, you need to adjust the start times. There were no cups at the water stations on the return section of the course. People were grabbing cups off the ground and getting water poured into their hands. Cake is nice on a run, but water is a must. If you have a race in the middle of summer and move the start time to the late morning, people need water in 85+ degree weather. I've signed up for this race 4 years in a row as soon as it opened. I'll wait to see the start time/date next year.
