This was a very cool course. I was skeptical of moving the race of Fayetteville, but the city of Springdale really works hard to provide support and security for the runners. The race displays the trails and the streets via this course so there was a lot to take in. We even ran inside of the Arkansas Naturals AA baseball stadium. Post race swag and food was the best I’ve ever seen.

Bummed out because Mother Nature iced us out. The race directors made a good call to cancel the race and gave ample notice for travelers. A replacement race on a different course is set for Apr 29.

I loved this race but i was unfortunately stricken by the flu so I didn’t get to see how fast this flat course is. I got to see big city skyline and quaint southern landscapes. It was a beautiful course. There was a ton of supporters throughout the whole course and I laughed many times at some of the signs and antics of the crowd.

Tulsa was a nice town. It was easy getting into downtown and I loved how close The Aloft hotel was to the start. Parking at the hotel was secure. The expo was top notch. The course was the most difficult I’ve done so far, but I only missed my PR by 40 seconds. This is a great course to prepare you mentally. The course was fun with a lot of community support. The industrial scenery was not as good as KC but the residential neighborhoods were awesome. One thing I didn’t like was all of the concrete. This is a great race. Oh ya, Bart Yasso said my name at the finish! 🤓

The Garmin Marathon is a race that has had many changes to its course. I’m glad I ran it because I’m a loyal supporter of Garmin running watches and they develop unique race swag. The scenery was a bit boring, but the elevation changes were not that hard to handle. I set my PR for 2017 here and the pacers I ran with were expert level.

This is a great race. There is plenty of cool city-scapes to look at and great community support and live music. This race had strong, knowledge and diverse pacing which was very helpful for a moderately difficult course. The Plaza was among the coolest places to run and the neighborhoods and parks were cool too.

This is a low key race with a lot of perks. It’s an out and back course where the out and back is run two times (once for the half) along the White River. The scenery of the river is beautiful, but the wind can really circle around in the valley. After the race, showers are available and a truly awesome all you can eat pot luck is put on for the runners by the locals at no charge. Plus, they give you the best running shirts I’ve ever seen and the medals are classy.

NWA has a fun running community. The organization at The Hogeye has a long history and is set to continue well into the future. The 2015 course was the 2nd of 3 major route changes. This course took you through downtown Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas and utilized the Razorback Greenway trail system with a nice loop around Lake Fayetteville. Now the race has moved a wee bit north into Springdale, but the course looks very promising. I can’t wait to run the new course on my birthday in a few more years.

This is a cool point to point 25K race in Missouri between Carthage and Sarcoxie. The direction of the race is determined by which direction the wind blows with the intention of giving the runners as much benefit as possible by having the wind at your back as much as possible. The race is chip timed and swag ranges from above average to super excellent. The race directors are passionate about running and the race is a long standing tradition. The course has gently rolling hills and is well supported.
