"Best one yet"

5

This was my 5th or 6th time running the Arbutus Firecracker 10k and I think this was the best one yet. The details were well thought out. This years post race treats were awesome!

This was my first 10k, it was a great challenge and wonderfully supported from the residents in Arbutus. I would definitely recommend.

"Community friendly 10k"

5

The course was challenging and fun and I loved how the residents had sprinklers and hoses out for the runners. Lots of water stations and very well organized. This was my first year but won't be the last. Thumbs up!!!!!!!

Fantastic and challenging race! It was very well coordinated. There were excellent post race snacks including watermelon, snowballs, freezie pops, hot dogs, water, Gatorade and donuts!

"Great race! Well organized, lots of support on the course."

5

It was hot and humid but the spectators on the course cooled down the runners with hoses, ice and cool towels. There was prize money three deep in each age group and awards ceremony was initiated about 75 minutes after the race started which is unheard of for a 10k.

"Great Race"

5

Great course but tough! The spectators are awesome along the route. They will have hoses out as well as water stops. My first year running it was great and I plan on going back again.

Post race is great. Lots of food fruit and water/drinks. They do it right!

"10/10 would recommend"

5

The atmosphere is great and very friendly. Event staff is organized and well coordinated. The course is great! A tad hill, but overall enjoyable. Police have roads shut off, so you have all roads to yourself.

The course was very tough for me then to add the extreme heat and humidity made it harder but there was so much support on the course it was amazing!!! Having the community come together with sprinklers hoses extra water stops was so appreciated.

"Arbutus Firecracker 5K"

5

This is a great race. There is plenty of parking. The residents along the race course have hoses and sprinklers going for the runners since this is usually a hot race. This year the weather was horrible with heat and humidity, but I love running this race every year.
