Let's face it, it's the reason you didn't give up on your New Year's resolution in February. Too many people and not enough road at this event. Be prepared to run in a giant pack for the first few miles.

What's not fun about running a 5K where a city comes out to cheer on the runners in droves?!?! People host bloody mary parties and invite the runners to stop by. Great event in a great city!
