By TeamRunRun coach Keith Laverty (who came in first and set a new course record, I might add!):

Difficulty – Is it a tough course?
On paper, this doesn’t appear to look terribly difficult. However, all of the hills in the 2nd half are deceivingly hard, especially since many of these are steeper staircases or steps to climb up. With being a relatively short-ish distance, you’ll feel those hills plenty!

Organized and well run – Did it feel like a well-oiled machine or were they flying by the seat of their pants?
Rock Candy Running and Mathias Eichler always do a great job with clear communication in their race event details, e-mail newsletter and everything on their website. Very well-organized, well-marked, well-loved event!

How many stars do you give this race and do you recommend that others run it
I think this event will become a staple, winter community event. Friendly folks and a fun way to end the year of racing!

That’s how we like to do it at Rock Candy. Thanks Keith for joining us, and setting the bar high for the next few years.
