Great fun, good times and terrific scenery. This is a great race to do with friends and enjoy a fabulous lunch afterwards in Capitola. This is organized well and all of the different bands make things so lively and fun. All of the music is so motivating and fun. Many people will be dancing through the race. This is a great local event - sign up early because they always sell out. The only negative is the bussing back to the start of the race to get your car.
