Great race. Beautiful location, nice course, not terribly hilly just some steady inclines mixed with flat. T-shirt, medal, water and a granola bar at the end. Only issue is that there was no discount for parking for race participants which made it a very expensive entry.
Thank you Laura! So glad you enjoyed the race. Yes we understand, however we only pay for the road closure, we have no control over the price of parking, I'm sorry you felt it was expensive. Hopefully it didn't ruin your experience.
