My first time running the Hair of the Dog and I dont regret it.
The Balmy BC is a nice place to marshal the start of the race, nice and warm on a very cold New Years Day. Lots of coffee and juice waiting. Registration was quick and efficient. The race is basic. No shirt and not much of a swag bag, but its timed and well laid out.
Course was pretty straight-forward, if icy along the Martin Goodman Trail from the Balmy Beach Club over to Leslie St, South on Leslie to the gate of Tommy Thompson Park and return. A Water & Peach Schnapps/OJ station at the turn around
Tip: Remember that its Schnapps at the refreshment station unlike the lady in front of us who was....surprised when she threw it in her mouth :)
Party after was nicely done. Decent chili, both veggie and meat. Lots of room to sit down and warm up.
For the extra brave, some take a dip in the lake. I did not.
If plans permit, I will probably be back again this year.
Cons would be the icy trail, but thats hardly the fault of the race.
