Loved this race. Expo was pretty large and packet pick up is simple. I’m a fan of bigger races and there was a lot of runners for this one. Tons of crowd support with lots of water stops and lots of alcohol stops if that’s your thing. I would say the course was pretty flat for Tennessee. Running by the childrens hospital at around miles 2-3 was amazing. Such a great cause and I’m going to try to make this one a yearly run, especially since i did so bad this year. Was sick with the flu or covid last week and knew going in it wasn’t going to be a good one.

Expo and corals were very well organized. The whole pre-race reminded me of a mini Indy Mini. The course was pretty hilly for a flat lander like myself. The first six miles were pretty much all up and down. A couple of the hills were pretty good climbs and was mostly run through neighborhoods and a park (I think). After that it was pretty flat run mostly along a river path that had some nice views. Somewhere around mile 11 or 12 you finally get to run on Route 66 for a little bit. Only bad thing was a lack of porta potties and water stations were spaced out pretty far apart. There were tons of people along the course handing out water and lots of alcohol though. Lots of crowd support. Was a fun race for sure and would do again if the chance was there after I finish my 50 states. The jacket was ok, not a fan of white. The relay people got a nice blue hoodie that I wish I could have gotten instead :).

Fun race if you like smaller races. Expo wasn’t far from the stadium and easy in and out. Its just basically a packet pick so bring everything you need. There is a Dicks Sporting Goods about 10 mins away if you forgot something though. Course was average. its a small town in WV, not sure what others are expecting. Was as flat as it can be for WV, 2 small hills was it. You get to finish on the field and they toss you a football to cross the finish line with. Race photos were a pain to find and I still haven’t found mine but stuff like that doesn’t matter to me. The weather was unusually warm. I’m not really a warm weather runner so I did awful. Only thing I didn’t like was at the finish it was hard to find the water. Would recommend if you need West Virgina and I would do it again for sure.

This was a tough race due to the weather. June in the midwest is brutal. There is a 50k, 50 miler, 100k and 100 miler. They have a 6 am start and an 8 pm start time. I started at 8 pm and it was still 83 degrees at the start and around 65 at the finish. I couldn’t imagine doing the 6 am start as I’m not a warm weather runner at all. The course overall was decent. Was a 3.5 out and back through the Indiana State Park area of Indianapolis. Lots of food and beverage options set up at the start/finish line and you can set up camp in the same area.

I’ve ran this 7 time now and still one of my favorites. if you’re an Indy 500 fan you get to run a lap at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Expo was a little smaller this year (probably because of covid) but was still a decent size. Swag and after party is always great as well. must do if you need Indiana

All in all the course was pretty flat, one small hill around mile 5-6. Views of the ocean were amazing. Temps were warm (mid 70s) and very humid, but there is always a breeze to help cool you down a little. no expo, just packet pick up and can buy a few race items. there are no running stores on the island so if you need fuel or gear you might be out of luck

Overall this is a pretty good race. lots of hills the 2nd half of the race. not a ton of runners but there was a lot more people along the course than I thought there would be. lots of old buildings and houses along the course as well. no expo, just a packet pick up. after party was decent, beer and music can’t ever be wrong. would recommend if you need mississippi
