|This is in the starting line pointing back. The runners went for about 500 meters or more.|
|This was looking to the front. The starting 300 meters was up over a bridge. |
It was the only incline in the whole race.
It took about 0.5 km to get going and start the serious dodging.
Other than that, the race was well organized for 6,500 people. They had music, some energetic aerobics instructors leading stretching before the gun and the race course was nicely laid out. The distance was 3.5 miles or 5-point-something kilometers. Only companies were allowed to register so we had about 15 runners on our JV team. GE, GM, JP Morgan, Eaton and many others were represented quite well.
