My Favorite Part

Running through the Berkeley neighborhoods (2014 edition) was a lot of fun. The community did an excellent job supporting runners with signs, cheers and even large cups of water. The race definitely featured the best of Berkeley including a Cal Football game ticket with registration.

Recommended Changes

The 2014 race was particularly warm and the "late" start time of the race didn't help. The run along the Marina was particularly warm (no cloud cover and no breeze).

Tips for Future Participants

If it is a warm day don't forget your electrolytes - enjoy the beauty of Berkeley and enjoy this race!
