For the high price you would think it would include entrance to the park, or at least race day parking! The medal is great and it was fun for my first half, but don't think I'd do it again. I could do 2 others halfs for the same price.
Great organization, lot's of fun and I had a great race. But I don't get the cost. As far as I can tell there is no charitable connection. I loved the medal but I am not sure I really got my money's worth overall
