Great race...great course, good food, plenty of beverages, great prizes, good music, awesome swag.
Beautiful course, well organized race, lots of great food and drinks, fun after party. Will definitely be doing this again next year!
I greatly appreciated the food, drinks, pre-race snacks like fruit for those of us who has too much of La Cruda to eat breakfast, and the course was very well marked and had plenty of hyrdration and race official support. And the race was pretty much exactly 3.10 miles, or 5K. Other races struggle with precision. Only suggestion ... even with a long line, could the race still started at 10 and the late folks just allowed to pass the starting line a little late. I've been allowed to join in as late as
The race had a great location, easy to find, and ample amount of parking. The race and course itself was well organized with markers everywhere.
Great race! Hope y'all have it again next year, I'll definitely sign up!
This was my first time participating in the race and I really enjoyed it. The route was enjoyable and it was very well organized! It was a great way to start off the new year and I look forward to participating again next year.
I convinced 5 of my friends to run a 5K on New Years day. They agreed even though they would all be at my NYE party ðŸ˜‚ We showed up, froze, and ran. No regrets and we plan to do it again next year. Very fun event. Well organized and the course wasn't bad.
This is a great run to start the new year. Good course,
Truly enjoyed everything about it! La Cruda 5K will definitely be an every year thing for me!
Great first time experience! Happy birthday Tony! My hope is to do one 5k a month.
Fun race Great course Best after party Best food Best drink Great way to start new year..
Great race! The course was marked well. Love the vendors that come out for this race and the â€œswagâ€. The FB posts leading up to this race make it fun also! (Would only add that having water right at the finish without having to search for it would make it better.)
Love Hillotes!!!! Helotes is my favorite to run. Great course my only adjustment may have been the hilly part up Antonio first at the beginning of the course. Start on time and let the other runners catch up if late registering. Or separate pre from /late Lastly my time never showed up which is odd because I preregistered and my friend registered day of and hers did. No biggie. Not like Iâ€™m Boston competitive but curious how it matches my watch. Will definitely recommend to others and will run ag
VERY WELL PUT TOGETHER AND VERY FRIENDLY PEOPLE!
What a way to start the new year! Well organized, nice course, great after party! Will run this race again!
This was my first race to participate in. I just recently moved here from Arizona and thought what a great way to welcome the new yr in. I was very impressed from the start to the finish. I plan on doing this race every New year. The after party was fantastic. I picked up my packet the morning of. I wish that pick up could have been in Helotes as I am still overwhelmed by the highway traffic. I give this race 5 stars.. Job well done.
Overall a fun race to celebrate the New Year! It was just super cold but otherwise a great race and post race goodies! Iâ€™ll be back again. ðŸ˜…
Had a blast! A fantastic way to kick off the New Year!
I do dozens of 5K's and mud runs a year, but this was my first time for La Cruda. This race was very well organized, packet pick up a breeze, and the swag was terrific! Pre race gathering was fun with great music and parking was easy peasy. Post race food, drinks, and an awesome finisher medal makes La Cruda my new favorite annual race!
Tony hit it out of the park again this year. Well organized, started on time, fantastic course, wide enough for all the participants, & great venue for the after party.
Always a fun race and a great time celebrating after. Really enjoyed the music, libations and hands down the best menudo I’ve had all year! Seriously, great job by all. See you next year!
A great course, good race support, finisher medals and great after party! I drive from Austin to do this race! Highly recommend!
This is a good race to start off the year. Good start time and route. Location is a plus. Good communication throughout the year is done through facebook. I will continue to do this race next year and years after that.
Great run w fun crowd. Good dj and food after. I loved that it start time was 10am
Was well organized, everyone was encouraging all us newbies, great time.
Great race. Awesome staff. Stay for the after party.
I ran the the first 2 years alone. Last year my sister supported me and volunteered. This year my daughter & nieces cake to support as well. I know the covid-19 has made a lot if changes & placed many restrictions, but i really missed the variety of alcoholic beverages this year. The staff & run still always great!
Loved the great time after the race. The start time of 10am was perfect for a New Years Day. The Den in La Vernia was fantastic!! Can’t wait to start 2022 out with La Cruda run!!
