Event Details (parking, facilities, vendors, schwag, etc.):
Parking was offsite, but shuttles set up every 15 min. This was a super helpful process, as well as ran like clockwork. Facilities were fine, other than the promise of hot showers. There was a wash off station that was fine, just not what i would call a “hot shower”. The bonfire was an awesome addition that you will not see at most competitions of this nature. The staff that i talked to were very helpful and kind as well. Vendors were fine for the time of the season and outcome of people. Every finisher got a medal as well as a good quality running shirt. With your race you also got a ticket for any beverage you wanted. The fact it was cooler out and the vendors had hot apple cider shows that the vendors really did care and considered many things ahead of time.
Race Details (length, obstacles, difficulty, etc.):
5 miles, amazing hills, and some of the most original obstacles i have seen in a course. The course itself is challenging, but can be accomplished by many different ages. It is very obvious that the team in this has put a lot of effort to have such an awesome course. Pinnacle Hill is of of the coolest obstacles i have ever experienced in OCR. If you get the chance go to this race.
Rating: 4 Stars (Great)
What would make this race better?:
This course was amazing. The only thing i would be more specific on would be the hot shower, as well as on course volunteers. The course had many water stations with people at them, however at many of the stations the volunteers seemed confused to what they were expected to do. The course and people in charge at the Glory village were amazing. This race had the best family feel to it i have ever seen.
