Average Rating:  
Recent Review: I ended up not being registered on race day.. and didn't hear the announcement that 1 loop runners needed to be at the back of the pack.. needs to be in instructions... Also.. could have some kind of medal or ribbon for finishers of the 1 loop.. Loved the race... great scenary... and loved the firepits and food tent... I will definately return.
