Overall, perfect weather and gorgeous scenery. I like small races so as long as your are okay with few spectators, then you will love this race. Many times, I was by myself. The first issue I noticed was not having cups for water/electrolyte drink at the first two aid stations. The other major problem was the course not being well marked between miles 10 and 11, when you get off the main road and run around the lake. I was alone when I reached that point, and ended up running in circles for about 6 min until other runners appeared. We were all confused, and ended up running along the road the long way. I spoke with Chris after the race about this, and he said he would correct my time (I have a TomTom). I have not heard back from him yet...

Top Tips: 
Not so much as a tip for other runners, but a suggestion for the race coordinators. It would be helpful to help cups at all the aid stations as soon as the races start AND to help with confusion about where to go, a sign can be put up on the fence so runners know where to go once they exit the main road into the park.
