The combination of heat, humidity and hills made this one of my slowest half marathons ever. I realized early on that this was not going to be a fast race for me, so I concentrated on enjoying what I could. There was surprisingly excellent course support, and lots and lots of water and Gatorade on such a hot, humid day. Did I mention it was hot?

This race highlights Ward Parkway, one of the nicest streets in Kansas City, lined with beautiful homes and churches. The terrain would qualify as “gently rolling”, not exactly flat, but nothing to worry about in terms of hills. The organizational side of things was top notch. I picked up my number the morning of the race (a bit of a scramble for parking, but nothing dire), so I can’t speak to the quality of the race expo. Good crowd support, great volunteers. Well done!

There are several races this weekend, from a full marathon down to chidren’s races; I ran the half, which loops from the top of the town to Point Pleasant Park back to the Citadel. There are hills, but nothing too daunting, and very few distances without some fans cheering on. Everything worked just as the organizers promised, and I would heartily recommend this race to anyone considering it.

The weather for this race is usually a little dicey (they’ve had to cancel and/or make it a “fun run” in previous years). All the same, if you don’t like heat and want to run two loops of Central Park, this is the race for you.
