We arrived in Wildwood with plenty of time to pick up our race bibs, we had pre-registered, and take a few pictures. The weather was perfect for a race. The temperature was in the mid-60's and, although there were some clouds there was no hint of rain. The wind was steady from the east off of the ocean although the humidity wasn't bad. Fortunately a cool front had blown in from the northwest and the Jersey shore was unseasonably accommodating for our run.
The course went south to a turn-around, north to a turn-around, back south again to the first turn-around and back to the start/finish on the boardwalk. Water stations were located at each end of the course. Since the course was on the boardwalk there were also joggers, walkers, bicyclist, and beach-goers all over the course as well. Also, runners ran toward each other on the entire course due to the two turn-arounds. The field of runners was small enough that this wasn't a real issue although the boardwalk got quite crowded by the time the last runner crossed the finish line.
Timing was provided by Run the Day.
Overall, it was a good race for a good cause. Brad, Scott, and I are already planning our next race.
