This was my first time running Broad Street. I really enjoyed the run and seeing the city from top to bottom. I was happy that there was plenty of water on course and ample porta pots along the way. Post race was insanely crowded but I was able to score some food in less than 5 minutes of waiting. The shuttle bus system was nice after the race to transport us back to the parking lot.
What would you do differently?:

I don't think I will run broad street again. Parking in the morning was fine and the subway ride was nice but leaving after the race was horrific. 45 mins to get out of the parking lot and another hour on 95 and 76 to get home. The race was just too large and it sucked the fun right out of it.

Hi Gwen! Good job! Just wanted to say "hi"
I did the race too, but ended up walking a lot I am thinking about doing it again next year, but need to remember to park by the exit gate, so we do not end up sitting in the car forever again
