A must for a good foot race is ...

I've run enough open races to see the do's and don'ts
  1. Plenty of start line bathrooms
  2. Chip timing system located on the back of the race bib
  3. One common marking tool to mark the course
  4. Announcing and music
  5. Lots of tasty treats and beer for post race
  6. Awards for overall and age divisions
  7. High quality race t-shirts
