3/31/2018 – Ran this Easter themed race with my dog Boone. He was extremely excited for it, and did a great job maintaining pace and not causing any problems. There were many dogs there, and the race director encourages a dog-friendly environment. The Lititz Fire Company offers a delicious omelette made to order before your eyes at the finish, which was the highlight for me AND Boone. He got his own! The course is fairly flat, with smooth, easy inclines in the first half as well as downhills for most of the second half. The final 1/4 mile is a little tricky. There are two tight turns before the finish in front of the fire hall, and walkers can become an issue. They start at the same time, but only go out for two miles, so some are occupying valuable racing lanes on the final sprint. I wish they had a divided finish to keep them to one side or the other. despite that minor complaint, I loved the run, and it was organized well. The longsleeve shirt was nice, and the Sauders eggs for awards were delicious!
