Blue Cheetah puts on a good, safe run. It is through a residential neighborhood, and spirits are always high. Lots of costumes, both simple and extravagant. It's a relatively fast course with one noted area of elevation increase (right before mile two). Parking is easy with lots of street parking and lots of businesses that are not open that early in the morning.

Top Tips: 
Two tips: this is a great family run with runners coming in at all times. The medals are marathon quality make them a great reward for a first run. Secondly, Blue Cheetah usually puts on a sale on race entries, so if you buy all three Aberdeen races (Bunny Run, Cats and Bats, Reindeer) there is usually a discount.
