Never heard of it nor what happened in Edmonton. I did the zombie survivor. That's the only race I've done.

I did the electrodash on Friday. It was fun but it was super cold! It was hard too as half of it was uphill with no breaks haha (at COP) but I enjoyed it :). What happened in Edmonton?

Oh man. The route they had took them through the river valley on steep hills next to a cliff, people had to go in single fashion and were bottlenecked. No medi's, barely any lighting. I had some friends who did it and it was a giant joke. So many people complaining on the facebook page, they are getting the news involved. I am all for charity runs as I have done quite a few but this one looks like it was terrible! And I guess they lied about it going to charity. I kind of want to drop out of the one on Saturday here in Calgary!

yeah. I don't think they're for charity, color me rad was if you wanted to. We also thought the light could have been better at electro dash. There were parts where the terrain wasn't completely level and without light it could be potentially dangerous, especially if running with kids. There were a few things that looked like speed bumps when going downhill, so my friend and I were running and all of a sudden you make one step and there's no ground where you thought there would be haha (it was too dark to see them). We were ok, but I don't know how I would have felt if I was one of the people running with a stroller. I know that the neon run is at canyon meadows, not COP, so it might be a bit different. 

 

I did color me rad last year and THAT was fun. It was very well organized, during the day so no problems with lights and the terrain was challenging but doable for people of all ages/activity levels.
