Brie and I!! Brie stuck with me the whole time, which was really nice. Usually I run alone and she goes off and waits at the finish line for me. It was really nice to have her with me the whole time! Not to many years left before she goes off to college!
I would highly recommend the Electric Run to my fellow runners! It was a blast!
Be aware that there is a $5 packet pick up fee for the race day. As it was explained to me, they have to staff more people for race day pick up packets. You can come the day before and pick up for free, but race day its $5. This covers the extra man power needed. I wasnt very happy about that since its not stated on their website or when you register. I've never been to a race that charges. Its discouraging to runners like myself that travel 3 hours to run.
Aside from that, this race was AWESOME! Will I do it again? Oh yeah! This is by far the best glow run and its totally worth the drive and money to participate! There is so many exciting "Lands" to visit! I cant even imagine how much it costs to put this event on! It was a blast!
Rockstar energy drinks is a sponsor and was giving away drinks. Brie took home 5 drinks and I ended up with 3. We also each got 1 before the race!
