Loved this course. It's fast and fun with just the right amount of flats and hills. Well organized and a nice community event for a great cause! Will tell everyone to run it.
This was my 1st time running this race and all-in-all I would say it's a good experience. If you are looking for a flat course, this is not the race for you. There is a combination of flats, down-hills and up-hills.
Though it did rain, I didn't feel it took away from the event and I found the race (and pre/post race events) was nicely organized. The finisher medal is a nice piece of hardware. The charity in which is the race is run for is one of my favourites (Sick Kids Foundation).
If I had to come up with an area for improvement, it would be the technical shirts that come with the race kit. The shirts were re-purposed from another event with an iron-on to cover over the markings from the previous run. The shirts themselves are nice, but the covering of another event 'cheapened' the look of them.
With all this said, I enjoyed the event and will likely be running it again in the future.
Nice course! Good combination of flat and hills.
