First time doing the 5Peaks race and absolutely loved it. The winners "medals "were unique. Tons of very cool prizes. The course was challenging but good for everyone. Well marked. Great volunteers. Fun and laid back atmosphere. Lots of food at the end. Looking at changing my race calendar to be able to run the remainder of the series, I enjoyed it that much.
I really liked this race. Lots of parking and port-o-potties. The route was repetitive, double loop. I liked the post-race goodies. What happened to the Athena category for Enduro? They are not in sync with their online registration. I did not like how they commenced awards before all the runners were in. The volunteer staff were very helpful and the course was clearly marked. Some people were running the wrong way towards runners. Not sure what that was about but it was confusing. On a positive note, the location was very beautiful.
Loved the Heart Lake venue addition to 5Peaks this year. It brings back memories of high school cross country races. Great course for spectators as the route came close to the finish many times. Awesome prizes as usual!
