Well, the weather started out bad (raining sideways and wind blowing hard), so can't blame anybody but Mother Nature on that one. However, I couldn't find any information on who this race is benefiting except for 'Bob Green.' The race was very small-scale (fewer than 40 runners, if that many). Running along the side of the road could be dangerous. No sport drinks at the end, chilli is from a can... not impressed with the food afterwards. I would not display my medal to anyone cuz it's 'ghetto' and the tee-shirt... Different distance run (5k, 10k...) all based on where you should turn around on a one way course. (BORING!) This is my 2nd 1/2 marathon and didn't get the same feeling as my first (Victoria, BC). There were no people cheering along the course or at the finish line. I could've run on my own and donate the money ($40) to a charity instead. Save your $$ if you are thinking of doing this run.
