Race package pick up was small but easy to find. Lots of goodies included but non that stick out as WOW that's great I received that. I am a big fan of the shirt though. Fun athletic design, and also women specific sizing.
The race was started off by the mayor of Drumheller (!) and they had a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11 prior to the race start.
The entire race was on pathways - but I had no idea how extensive the pathway system was in Drumheller! All you need to do is follow Mile-a-saurus ha ha.
We ran a bit through town, over the bridge, then out towards the museum. I was concerned the night before we would end up running the highway, but we took a turn off of it and ended up running along the pathway system. The Tyrell museum was about at the halfway point.
This course is the first I have said I will do every single year. Everything about it was that great. And check out the medal!
I shaved an amazing 5 minutes off of my time from my half in July. So super pumped about that. Finished in 2:04 and change.
If you are looking for a race not far from Calgary, I would highly recommend you give this one a go. And with all the dinosaurs around, it was just as much fun for the kids too :)
