Runners can expect the great experience they have enjoyed in previous years. A 2014 participant said, "The parking was plentiful and using 'real' bathrooms prior to the race was a plus. Additionally, packet pickup on race day was easy. The finish line had great snacks and attentive volunteers. The post party was a blast. We enjoyed watching the charity softball game with a cup of beer. We loved that there was a kids race on the baseball field."
A great event for the entire family, the Blue Crabs will hold their annual Fan Fest in conjunction with the race and includes access to the kids fun zone at the ballpark.
