You can even bring friends and family members who don’t want to run – they can join up on certain points along the course just like any other normal road race event out there. Additionally, there’s usually an award ceremony afterwards where winners receive their medals plus snacks/refreshments – it’s always great connecting with fellow runners after such an accomplishment!
