First run for this group so all things considered it was a very well organized run. Would like to have known how many runners had registered but no one knew. Will you have booths and vendors next year? They always add to the excitement and anticipation of the day. Announcers were very good with the perfect amount of humor and enthusiasm and able to project there voices aided by the mic. Some announcers become "silly" with the power of being able to command the stage.

Glad to see the city managing the event. Was so nice not to have a Boston Marathon crowd but just locals and families. Thanks Road Runner for helping support the event. The MC and the city staff were great.

The weather was beautiful and I was happy to be able to run along the beach. However, we were told to do only one loop and the mileage didn’t turn out to be for a 10k - it was more like 4:45 miles . It’s understandable though-

Unfortunately, the number of registered people was rather small. Very few sponsors and goodies at the end of the race. Not like in previous years.

The course should have been shown online ahead of time because it was confusing where to go. The drinking water at the end should have been closer to the finish line so you didn't have to trudge up the sand to get it. It would have been nice to have an atmosphere of lots of vendors and music to encourage people to stay at the beach.

Its a beautiful location. I love Encinitas! The team was very friendly. The announcer was great. Issues: the course was not a 10K-someone messed up. I never received my packet via mail, although they were very responsive and credited my account immediately. The medal was just OK, in comparison to those from previous races like Surfing Madonna and Encinitas Half Marathon. The t-shirts were great. Strangely, the picture of them in the emails showed’half marathon’….oops! The event has potential but needs to be better organized. Bring in more vendors. There didn’t appear to be a lot of support. I hope improvements can be made. I would love to run it again.
