The race was well marked and well supervised. There were volunteers at every turn who were directing and cheering everyone on. The energy level was very high!
I had my intervals at 2:1, and tried to keep to that pace, even though my knee was being grumpy. My overall pace was 11:48, so I wasn’t that fast, but I wasn’t too slow either. It was tough running up all the hills!!
My brother Lewis ran the 5k, while I ran 10k. He ended up winning first in his age group!
This was a well-organized, festive, pretty race. I would definitely recommend this race and hope to run it again next year! At the end of the race, there was a man in a tuxedo handing out sparkling cider. Definitely the cherry on the top of the dessert.
