Youth Villages has continued to be one of my favorite 5ks. Reasons?
- It was my first ever 5k (2006)
- Free beer (Bud Light)
- Free hot food (Hot dogs)
- Free delicious snacks (Chips, cotton candy, and the most amazing variety of ice cream bars *drool*)
- Great charity
- Overall awards that go 5 deep (instead of the usual 3)
- Live music
- Fun for the kids (Costumed characters, balloons, etc)
