Ran this race for the first time today. I've ran many races over the past couple yearsand this by far has to be the least enjoyable one. There were no race kits, other than a shirt, four safety pins and your bib, with no bag - also, there were no course maps, and the staff weren't very cheerful... at least the ones offthe track. I wouldn't run this one again. Although, I do think this is a wonderful charity, hence why I chose it.
it was at this event that i ran my very first road race back in 1999.
i've done this race several times and have generally enjoyed it. it's usually been cool in temperature and a bit wet due to the fall season, so i've never run an exceptional time here. pretty flat course, though, and the souvenir shirts are very cool (dark colour with neat skeletal emblem on front), and the food (especially the chili) is good.
it's easily reachable by bus, which eliminates car parking hassles.
Very basic race, not much special about it but a decent effort overall.

A good mix of very fast runners and those in costume out for a fun run. The course is flat and well marked.
The kids 1km is also a real treat to watch.
The only downside is that since its out of the way everyone has to drive there which makes parking a hassle. Get there early and you'll avoid the long lines to the parking lot.
