When I first registered for the race, the course was a large loop through Milwaukee. However, the course was then changed to be essentially two out and backs which concerned me. The out-and-back was not an issue though as there was plenty of scenery and crowd support throughout the race!

Certainly not my favorite race. Used this as a training run so ran 6 miles prior to the half marathon. Great hill workout but not much scenery. MORE

Once you leave the downtown area (after approximately 4 miles) you run the same section of the course on two different out and backs that has absolutely no scenery. During the second, further out and back, the half-marathoners are no longer running and there a very few marathoners so you will find yourself running alone. Was not mentally prepared for this challenge.

The first few miles and last couple of miles are fast and flat. The middle of the race has significant climbs through the trails. Fun, challenging race. Very few runners so you will likely not see anyone around you once you enter the trails.

Great race environment with plenty of support along the way. The final 6 mile stretch is a bit brutal with limited scenery. The first half is definitely more challenging with the hills.

Out and back, mostly flat course. Running around a small airport does allow the occasional landing/takeoff distraction. Awesome sweatshirt but overall not a very well organized race - understaffed. MORE

People aren’t kidding when they tell you Indy is flat. Fun starting and ending in downtown. Very congested at the beginning of the race and took about 1 mile before it opened up. Nice cap, but the technical shirt is rather tacky with weird dimensions.
