The volunteers hung in there to assist the last of the 5K people...that was very considerate and appreciated.

Loved every bit of it. I’m not a runner but was goaded into singing up by my son Kim law. Very glad I participated, and will be back next year.

While this would be fun as a family event this was not fun for a runner. The race started seven minutes late. The shirts were not held or asked for your size before hand. Other races I run it is asked your size and they keep them for you. Lines for picking up registration were unlabeled and unclear to multiple people which caused more than one to have to wait to get to the front just to be told to go to the back of a different line. There was not enough water by the end. It was a fun time and the announcer was fun but after that it really felt unorganized and poorly ran.
