Maps and organization was a little poor.

Race route was awesome. Finally a hill near the end of the race. Too many race directors baby out and stay flat or put the hill at the start. Made finishing the race feel like a real accomplishment.

Not a terrible run overall. Lots of good treats from the sponsors. Tims coffee before a race is always nice and lots of good food afterwards. The flash mob that the kids put on was really cool. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The two things that stop me from giving this a higher rating is I had a very very hard time finding where the event was being held. On the race website it says the event is in Edmonton.... not very helpful. Then on 'mynextrace' it says the race is being held at the university which is huge. Finally I learned the event will start at the butterball building. Not being from this area, I had no idea where it was and had to decipher where the race was based on the course layout.

The second thing that I would ask to be changed is the course layout. I don't mind really big hills but please please please put the really big hills going up at the beginning. Doing 9km and having a huge hill wore a lot of people out. This is my third race that has had this in 2013. I don't know why race route planners seem to want to torture people who just want to have fun.

Lots of cool and unique costumes which is always a lot of fun to see and the warm up helped with the cold and (ugh) snow. I'll be back next year.
