This is a great small(23 half marathoners, more 10k/5k runners) race. The course is beautiful with a mix of easy shaded trail, country roads, and some small hills. The course is about 50% shaded and the weather was perfect. It was well marked. The entry fee is very affordable and the medals and water only stops are reflective of that. The shirts were nice, and optional to purchase. The water stops were plentiful, just bring your own electrolytes and fuel. If I’m in town I’ll do this race again! Many other events over the entire weekend.

The Madtown Half was a great rolling course starting and ending at the Capitol. There was plenty of water and Gatorade at all the stations with gels at mile 8. There was no expo, just a packet pickup with no clear bag provided (provided morning of race if needed). Free race photos were fantastic!!

Overall it was a nice race with few spectators but great volunteers. We had a great time after, using the electric bikes and touring the area. It was a nice weekend!

This was a great event. The expo was small but sufficient and had everything I needed. The Lincoln Track Club even offered me a free long sleeve shirt when I mentioned I was from Florida and it was colder than I was expecting! Then the free spaghetti dinner.

The race itself was fantastic! It was perfect weather. I loved the rolling hills, the many many families and band cheering runners on, with full extra aid stations. What a great welcoming city. The Nebraska Army Guard was everywhere which was really nice. They were working , running, and playing music! The roads were nice and neighborhoods were scenic to run through. The swag at the end included a lunch bag filled with goodies. The best part was the water/Gatorade came with lids and straws. I’ve never experienced this and I didn’t have to stop once. Brilliant.

This is one I would come back to – it was delightful!

I did the weekend series – the 10k and the Half. What perfect weather! It was such a huge production, very well done. First, the swag was the nicest ASICS jacket Ive ever received at a race, a tshirt, finisher long sleeve shirt, 3 medals and two boxes of BioFreeze. The expo had many vendors and you could test drive a BMW.

The start/finish was incredible with huge screens, cars, and great announcers. Every detail is thought about – from the fireworks during the National Anthem to the BioFreeze station. The city lights up with Marathon messages on the building and runners around Reunion Tower. So neat!

It’s a nice course with the uphill at the beginning and the downhill in the back half. I dropped a glove and someone sprinted to me to get it back – really nice runners!

It was a great weekend as well with many places to visit and easy public transportation. I recommend this one as a great destination race. I’m hoping to come back next year!

Revel races are great! I liked the Big Bear course with rolling hills the first 9 miles and all downhill from there. It was an unusually hot year – so the last 3 miles were very hot in the 90s, but low humidity and downhill. The community provided additional water stops which was really appreciated. I ran the marathon this year and had a PR, but the half I believe is the fastest in the country. I highly recommend this race and the Revelers Facebook group, and Coach Paul Carmona.

I only ran 22 miles intentionally. However, I liked the course, going through the Broncos stadium and through other points of interest. It was tough for me as I live at sea elevation, so 5k elevation with some inclines did make it notably harder than normal.

There were some places that were a little tight like the trail, but it did not impact me at all. I moved aside as the front runners were going past.

Water and Gatorade stations were frequent, gels only at 6&20 but I brought my own. I would say it had decent crowd support. Overall a fun weekend!

I loved everything about the weekend. We went on hikes, went to Mt.Rushmore, and the train museum. I only wish we had more time. The race itself is exceptional. Before the race we looked at the exhibits at the visitors center. Then the race! Some hills, but the beauty and perfect weather made it one of my favorites. There is a lot to do for non runners as well. We will be back!

The organization and swag is great. I think they listened closely to feedback from prior years. I love downhill races. This felt downhill until Mike 10. I know on paper it still goes downhill but there are several ups to that as well! And it did get really hot running in the full sun. However, I anticipated that coming in and adjusted my expectations. If you’ve never run here, the scenery and course are beautiful! I would recommend it – for the challenge.

This is a great course, and I think the second fastest in the country- with the fastest half being Big Bear. I really enjoyed it! The volunteers were great, love the shirt and swag.
