Goldy’s 10 Mile, a.k.a “Goldy’s Run” was held on Saturday, April 14, 2012, at 8 am. This was only the second year of the race, but as a participant, I felt that it was a great success!
In addition to the 10 mile run, there is a 5k Run or Walk and a Goldy’s Gallop kids run.
Packet pickup was held on Friday the 13th at the TCF Bank Stadium from 11-7 pm.
Parking was a hassle. There is a lot of construction right now on campus for the new lightrail, and parking was limited and expensive. The packet pick-up was very slow- we waited in line for an hour and a half! A coworker and I had run out over lunch, thinking we would be in-and-out for packet pickup, but it took much longer than expected.
Goldy the Gopher!
Goldy! As a University of Minnesota alum, I enjoyed all the Goldy the Gopher gear. The techinical shirts were very nice.
The weather was perfect- 45 degrees at the start, and about 65 degrees at the finish.
The course weaved through campus and along the river. I really enjoyed it, EXCEPT for all those killer hills. I did not remember the campus being so hilly when I was a student!
The finish was straight into the TCF Bank Stadium. It was a great finish line.
