Overall, it was a well-organized run with signboards, medics on standby, water stations, mobile toilets, and others from the starting point and up to the finishing line. The route was great with minimal elevation for 10KM and there were nice views and plus it’s highway road so there was no bumps, no pot-holes, no traffic lights, and its wide.
