Is it All About that Bling?

10 Race features that make a difference…

  1. A course that is mostly on the road. 
  2. A course with clearly marked turns.
  3. Free hydration for after the race.  Something with electrolytes.
  4. On site packet pickup! Just in case…
  5. An out and back course, or a one lap course.
  6. Timing Chips and Timely Results!
  7. Bag check for large races.  Convenient parking for small races.
  8. Easy access to the start line.
  9. An early start!  7 a.m. works for me!
  10. USATF Certified Course for a competitive race!  A fun theme for a fun race!
