My Annual 5K for the Benefit of the Doubt

This is a web page template that anyone can use to help race participants, their friends and family to a positive experience. Whether it's a 1-mile fun run or a marathon, these topics are important.  

The template is a work in progress.  I tweak it as I get more feedback from other runners, walkers, strollers, and from race organizers on what's important to them. 

Topics are in bold text, details in normal fonts, and commentaries in red.  Details are examples only.
