Did the race in 2019
I think it was well organised.Due to traffic issues I noticed in Miami I took an Uber very early to make sure I will arrive in a fashionable time.It was very rainy outside in the morning and when I arrived there were enough places to stay dry, it was very lucky that there was that underbridge pass couple of metres from the start line. Where everybody went to stay dry. The course was okay. The finish line was a bit short so I couldn't know if I am approaching it or not. I tend to sprint when I see the finish line, but this time it was very short those last meters. The pictures were great and the food provided at the end was more than enough. To bad it rained and everybody looked for uber immedeatly after finish the race instead of staying and socialising at the beach.

I didnt officially run this race. I was supporting two friends who ran, but from the looks of everything it was a great race, well organized on an amazing course with even better views.

Nice race! The climate was harsh this time, but is a condition you cant control. The organization was quite good same as the party after the race

Did the race in 2019
The race was really cool, the route was very flat so you can improve your record. You have to be very careful at the beginning because the road is very narrow so makes it difficult for runners to leave. Finally, it would be better if there were corrals to avoid problems with the objectives( rcords )of the people.
