**This race report brought to you by the Grey**
As I said, it was a SMALL race, with only a 75 finishers in the 10K and 107 in the 5K. The courses both followed out and backs on Farrington Hwy, but in opposite directions. The 5K headed out towards the end of the road by Kaena Point, while the 10K headed out towards Waialua. I guess they figured this would keep the crowd thinner, which was probably an important consideration since it was an open course, with the only traffic control happening at the turnaround point where the runners had to cross the road for the return legs. The problem with this approach was that as the runners came into the finish line, they were practically running into each other as they crossed the timing mat from both sides!
