"The 2016 WYTC run/walk was very well organized--in fact out of the hundreds of 5k/10k races that we have done this was one of the most organized. The race started on time, the water stops went smoothly, and there was no waiting for the award ceremony. The swag was awesome--free pizza, free subway, plus raffles (one for a bike). Although it was raining last year, the course was flat and puddle free! We will definitely be registered for 2017--hopefully it will be drier. It will be a good 'shake out' run after the Pgh. Marathon. "
