The race was well organized and the 10 km and 5km started just after 8 a.m. I liked that the fact that the course is on a paved trail. Just dissapointed that there was no swag bag this year. T-Shirt and bandana..that's it. Seeing as the race is sponsored by Upper Canada Mall you'd think they would rally up some more sponsors. Having said that, this run is for a good cause and I still had fun.

Poorly organized. Kit wasn't ready although I signed up online weeks beforehand. Parking lots were closed at 9am which is inconvenient if your coming from out of town and our 5k was not starting until 9:25. The course isn't well shaded, this is probably a better course to run in cooler weather.
