I picked up our packet on Thursday at a Sports Authority in Brentwood, and I was in and out with the packets in five minutes!

Waves were released with several minutes in between, which allowed the course to be both runable and walkable. We ran through the parking lot of the business park, a road that was adjacent to interstate, turned around in a neighborhood, ran through the ballpark, and finished back by the DJ. The course had several neon color stations, a water station, and multiple areas with blacklight towers that were blasting fun music. As it got darker, the road was a bit difficult to see at times but we never had any issues or safety concerns.
When you finish, you get a neon color packet for the color throws that were scheduled for every 10 or 15 minutes. We wanted to experience the first one before we headed home. I took the two photos below as the first color throw progressed.
We both really liked this race. The DJ was great, there was ample staff and volunteer support, music throughout the grounds (I was never out of earshot of music, which was great), the expo was quick and easily accessible, and entering and departing the grounds was a breeze. The race was also appropriate for runners and walkers of any age. Check out their website to see when they are coming to a city near you!
