How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Challenge Nation was a fun race. They were very organized at check-in and make quick accommodations for the rainy day (although it did not end up raining during the race). I would have liked a clearer finish line. There was nothing to cross, and it was a little unclear where to go to get your finish time. The Great Urban Race was held at the same location, and they had a big inflatable arch you ran through, and then someone handed you your finish time. Challenge Nation should consider having a finish line next year. Also, if you are used to the Great Urban Race, this race is much shorter and only travels around 1 neighborhood. So we didn't feel as accomplished at the end of this race, but we still really enjoyed it and would recommend it.
