Remember - no race is perfect. A lot of time and energy goes into planning a well put together race, but things may still go wrong. Be considerate of the race planning team/race director. If you have ideas on how to better the event, it is likely that the race planning team would be happy to hear these ideas in a positive and productive manner. Remember, the best compliment a race director/planning team can receive is for you to return year after year and to bring your friends.
Now - get out and enjoy the road and trails. Happy running, and please be considerate of others!
These tips were compiled from personal experience, general running knowledge, race directing experience, and RRCA.
