San Diego County Fair 5K!

One day groupon had a special for the San Diego County Fair 5k and I decided to check it out. Of course I had to wrangle in one of my running friends to go with me since it was special deal for two tickets.  

The race was on Saturday, June 17th, 2017 down in Del Mar, which is about an hour away. 
We got to park right at the fair grounds and the packet pick up was at the edge of the parking lot.  It actually flowed quite nicely and we were able to get our packets and have enough time to drop them off at our car before the race started.
The race started and ended at the Del Mar Race Track. It was kind of cool because when we started we actually ran through the shoots for the horses for the races.

We started off at different times because there were so many people.  
It was really cool to run through the fair grounds before anyone else was there and it was kind of cloudy which was nice.


 However, the race was a bit short of a full 5k, but it wasn't actually timed either. And that was ok with me, it was just fun to run this race. And of course it was really cool to run through the cattle barn, seeing the jerseys reminded me of my dad's farm.

The best part was that we got a free admission ticket to the fair to use at another date. Of course with two young kids and our crazy summer schedule we never actually made it back, but we hope to get there next summer.
