Azalea Classic 5K

This race was a last minute decision to add to my race schedule. The proceeds benefit a school where a friend of mine’s child attends, so I thought why not? It ended up being a great decision.

The races started with a series of children’s races. There was a distance for every age, shape and size. It was great to watch child after child cross finish line after finish line. Heck, they even had a mile for you to take your dog with you. How awesome is that?

We lined up at the start line and off we went. There were not a lot of us, but there was enough runners that you could always see where you were going. The volunteer support was great and they had someone at pretty much every turn to make sure you didn’t miss one. There were two live bands on the course that seemed to be alumni of the school (translates they were high school aged and younger) but they did a really good job and it was fun to see them as you rounded the corners.

We crossed the finish line and were greated with plenty of refreshments. The t-shirt was really cute to boot. I was pleasantly surprised with this race and would do it again in a heart beat.
