Van Meter Park2Park 5k

1. Praises - I was very impressed by the absolute minimum distance for the race being a 5k. It is common for road race people to measure a course without accounting for people running the tangents. As a result, a race is called a 5k, meaning 3.1 miles, when the race is actually 3 miles, give or take. Criticism: 1. I doubt I am not the only one who would have preferred the race begin at 7 instead of 8, because it was 75 degrees when the race began and approximately 77 when I finished in 4th place. I do not envy the runners who did not finish until it was 80 (+) degrees, around 9 am. Even for Olympic 5k runners, 75-77 degrees is rough. I am aware the race officials cannot control the weather, but starting at 7 am in future years may be a wise precaution. 2. Age group awards and / or awards in general. I understand this was only the first year for the race. 3. Self-timed: Nothing wrong with this, per se. In future years, you may consider hiring a company to track times and / or awards to post online, like FitnessSports in Clive. I was happy to run in this race. I hope you continue to have it.

Nice race for a great cause

The race was great - really enjoyed the small town spirit and the course. Many runners are a competitive bunch, and it would help to have race timing and awards. To cut down on costs race t shirts could be optional for an extra fee.
