Review: Ran this race in December 2006 and I will never forget how cold it was! It was barely 30 degrees at the start, my ipod froze and stopped working at mile 4. I couldn't feel my hands the whole time. I carried a powerbar in my pocket and it was frozen solid when I tried to eat it. As I looked around I noticed other runner's sweat had turned to frost on their hats and shoulders!

Despite the cold, it was overall a good race. Went through a few nice historic looking neighborhoods. A few bands were out to keep you motivated. There was a short dull industrial section that seemed to be void of fans. And the hills are all at the end, not many though.

Year: 2006

Total races: 30
