All squeaky clean pre-5K
We arrived to get parking early, but ended up waiting like 45 minutes to get into the parking lot. Talk about poor planning, ughhh... Luckily, we got to the fairgrounds about 15 minutes before the start of the 5K. We were probably like wave 20 or something. I did like that this 5K had waves going ever 2 minutes instead of every 5-10 minutes like other 5Ks. The starting line was basically sending us into a white bubble foam frenzy & off onto the course!
Time to line up
Post starting line
White foam shoes
There were four color foam stations: pink, green, blue & yellow. I wished green would stain better, but we got yellow & blue to make green ;)
Pink foam shoes
We passed by a dirt bike area so we got to watch some dirt bikers get some serious air!
Green foam shoes
Not very green foam
Blue foam shoes
Yellow foam shoes
Throw up the peace sign ;)
We ended up at the after party for a bit as well as getting a free full-sized Monster drink before heading out!
Totally marketing for them, JK!
Overall, this was a fun 5K! However, I'm not sure if I'd do it again since the parking situation was horrendous & the course barely had any shade. It was like 80+ degrees on Saturday & that wasn't too fun. This was a very family friendly 5K so I'd definitely recommend families doing it together :)
