I'll be blunt: This course was really confusing. Somewhere near the beginning of the race, I was running with a few other people at the head of the pack. One of the organizers comes riding up on a bike and tells us that we're going the wrong way. Apparently, we had passed an unmarked turn about 60 feet back. This was not the last time I saw racers miss a turn due to the course being unmarked. I personally saw it happen 4 times .There were volunteers scattered throughout, but there were long stretches through thick trees where you would find yourself alone. At one point, you turn around and run back the way you came. As I approached the turn around point, I saw a group of guys running 50 yards or so ahead. I asked the volunteer stationed there what those racers were doing and he replied, "Oh,they ran too far!" How am I supposed to know how I placed if not everyone ran the same distance?
Also, the end of the 10k course runs is shared by cars entering/leaving the parking lot. Nothing like having to stop your race to let a car pass. Anyone really trying to compete with other racers or who is trying to beat a certain time should pass on this race.
As a positive, the 10K course was quite challenging, with a lot of running in sand and a good bit of swimming.
