Overall I thought the race was well put on for a smaller race. It started in an industrial park and then took you on some of Charlotte’s greenways which are pretty well done. Most of the course feels like you are running through the trees. There are some gravel sections with really loose gravel, not well packed.

Since it was a smaller race you could find yourself alone at some points, so some better signage was needed for some of the turns.

Not a whole lot of crowd support, again do to the small local nature of the race.

Swag was a shirt and a medal so nothing really outside the norm. I remember seeing something about ice towels, but those were not given out if they were on course. Also, there was beer at end of race, but not a whole lot of food.

This was a wonderful race. The course was downhill and beautiful. It was in the 50s as well which was very nice. Don’t let “trail race” scare you most of the course is well packed and cleared trail. There is one small down hill section that gets a little rockier, but only for a short time.

The swag was really just the t-shirt and medal which are nice, just no extras. There is great food and water at the finish line and then a fun after (with beer) part in town when the marathon finished.

If you are looking for a fun South Dakota race this is a good choice!
