A very nice event from start to finish (about: 2009)|

You would never have known this was the first year for the event. The organization and management of the race was exceptional. Volunteers and/or police (smiling) were at every intersection, and the aid stations were well spaced, with lots of yellow-shirted volunteers. The loop course rolled around the city for the most part, with one good-sized hill around 12 miles in, and then a short, nasty one with about half a mile to go (it couldn't be helped). The shirt, medal, food, and aid tent were typical, but very nice.
