The race was awesome. The hills and the scenary was remarkable. The expo before and after race was the worst I have ever been too and I do about 2 races a year. The TRULY at the end was horrible as well. I wanted a beer! We paid ALOT of money for this race and we were underwhelmed.
Examples: food choices were not healthy options, drinks were not good(Truly!), lack of music or motivation/excitement at end and throughout the race.
Resident of Angelus Oaks, the mountain community at mile 9 of the marathon were promised (and it was in the mailer) pilot cars to get down the mountain during the event. Revel pilots never showed and CHP started piloting residents down at 8:30am. UNACCEPTABLE. This is our home. We live here year-round. We've also still seen trash and clothing along the highway which is upsetting. I ran this year but if you don't get your logistical act together, I'll do my best to make sure 2020 is the last year you are welcome in our mountains.
