Things to do during & after the Race
(Fishing, Disc Golf, Softball, Basketball)
If spectators wanted they could watch the start of the race while fishing.  There is also a nice disc golf course that I see a lot of people out on.  Across the parking lot there is also a baseball diamond and basketball hoop.
