Not a good event if you want to be professionally timed with an accurate time. Usually not chip timed and awards are only given away to the top 5 males and females. No age category awards so if you are an older person, it will be very hard to get an award because you have to beat the faster young people. 

The same awards each year and most of the races are NOT chip timed. 

I ran in 7 of their races and I stopped running in all of their races because of how they do their events.

If you are a walker or don't care about your time, this type of event is ok but if you want a more professional event where things run smooth, on time, and if you are an older person that likes to be recognized for your ability, you will find much better running events. Xanadu Race Management is not a company I will ever run at again but that's me. 

They usually have a nice after-party at some of the events and they do care about the community but this is not a company that cares about putting on a professional racing event for runners that run each week or at least a few events a month.
