I had no expectations about this race, clearly their 2012 race was less than fair based on reviews I had seen and posts I read around social media. When I was offered the chance to run the Renegade Playground Challenge I did so knowing the race organizers were truly trying their best to come out shining and wanted to leave 2012 behind. Also, it needs to be said, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway put their name on this and really, REALLY wanted to make sure this thing went off without a hitch.
Parking: Simple and there were attendants everywhere getting everyone into the lot. They waived all parking fees, yes, it was free!
Registration: Straight forward and smooth. You hit the first table where you signed the waivers, if you hadn’t already signed and brought your own. You then moved over to the packet pick up, give them the bib # you were previously given (it was e-mailed the night before) and they hand you your packet. On the outside of the packet are specific instructions on what to do with the bib and timing chip, very useful information. You then hit the next table and get your Renegade shirt, a nice shirt at that!
