Poorly Organized - 2012 Race By: J. B. - (Chicago, Il)
This was the most poorly organized race I've ever run. To start with, the emails and website made it look like the start time was 6pm. We got there and it showed no sign of starting; we could not find any official people to tell us what was going on; then we found out that 6pm was the kids race, and the adult 5K didn't start till 7. Looking back later at the website, we saw that this was written in very tiny print.
The race itself was fun. It was supposedly chip-timed, but since then I have still not been able to find any website with results. Good thing I looked at the clock as I was crossing the finish line!

CONFUSING! - 2012 Race By: L. F. - (Bradenton, FL)
Thought this was the Arthritis Foundation Jingle bell Run. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Missed that one because of this race which was not nearly as well organized. My team was also upset with me for taking them to the wrong event. Deceptive to say the least.

Jingle Bell Run Review - 2012 Race By: Lesley Hawks - (Venice, FL)
This was a timed race. We were stopped by police to allow traffic to go through. This is unacceptable. It was not a brief stop. Very frustrating.

Didn't like the race - 2011 Race By: Deb S. - (Bradenton,FL)
It was not well organized, not enough room for everyone participating.. And, it is not a timed race...
