Supposed to be a 5k. Asked about directions before I started but no one seemed to know more than "there will be volunteers pointing where to go..."
First 2 km was well staffed, though very crowded/zig-zaggy, as the girls at this "girls on the run 5k" were supposed to go out first. Then the kid in front of me got confused at an unmarked trail/road crossing and I pointed him straight ahead (a guess, correct). Then we got to another trail/road crossing, also un-volunteered or signed in any way, with me in the lead. I yelled for volunteers for directions, then guessed right. Apparently correct as I passed a small "2-mile" sign 500 meters later. Finally 200m later some volunteers again steered me to the right. But then 100m later, people said go straight around the track, when, later, volunteers showed up and pointed people another way. Argggh. $100 for the family, 1000 total attendees, and they can't even set a 5k course. And they lost Oriana's result too.
And even the people who did the full course, ran 4.7km. Angelica's not doing another 5k unless it's USATF certified...
On the bright side, later runners like AJ & Oriana didn't really notice the issues. And, even conservatively adjusted for the distance error, Oriana set a 5k PR - first time under 40 minutes.
