Big Bunny 5K 2018 in Cupertino

The Big Bunny 5K was loads of fun. It was my first year doing it. I love themed races, and I wasn’t going to miss out on dressing up as a bunny. My outfit included a bunny shirt from Gone for a Run, FlipBelt Crops, Zensah leg sleeves, BibBoards, and Brooks sneakers.

Expo

The expo was small with some local companies present. It included a local yoga studio, other local races, and informational booth with kids programs.

Swag

I picked up my swag on race day. The line was very long. They did have a system in place, but they really needed more people helping out. The shirt was a dark blue with a pocket painted on the shirt. I have to say it was one of the worst race shirts I’ve gotten. This race did include a finishers medal and age group medals. There was a kids race on a smaller course, which was very cute.

Course

The course was all through residential streets. They did not close fully those streets and we had to on a couple of occasions tell drivers to turn around. It’s amazing how stubborn people can be. The entire course was flat and some of the homeowners came out to cheer the runners on and wish them a Happy Easter.

Aid Stations

There was one water station along the way, which was plenty for such a short distance. There were some portapotties at the beginning of the race and none throughout the course.

Atmosphere

It was a family-friendly event. There were many mom, dad, kids, and grandparents running or walking together. There were raffle prizes at the end. The firefighters were there and encouraged runners as they made their way to the finish line.

Post-race

After the race, there was plenty of green areas for people to sit and recover and wait for the raffle prizes to be called. Kids had some toss games to play with and plenty of space to run around and enjoy the day.

A definite repeat for next year.
