Mostly flat course with one large bridge near mile 22 going over the intercoastal waterway as the course elevation map indicates. traffic is open during portions of the course and one section of sidewalk running for the marathon so keep alert.
Not much community support along the course but maybe due to most homes being summer houses?
Nice, small town vibe with good restaurants and fun places to explore.

Community support is great for this race with lots of spectator groupings along the course.
I experienced a foot injury around mile 8 which led to a pretty rough time but it would have been worse with a more difficult course.
I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fast and flat course centered around a downtown area. Run the race on Sat and go to an NFL game on Sun!

With multiple distances starting within 15 mins of each other and no corrals, the start line can get a little crazy but once you get going, it thins out quickly. After the first few miles on city streets, the course moves onto a paved hike/bike trail following a stream. This can make it difficult for spectators to come out so keep your personal cheering section closer to the start/finish.

staggered start for the half and full with roughly 1000 total runners combined led to an open running field and no crowds.
The start/finish location at the edge of a charming lakeside town was pretty marvelous.
Pace groups go up to 5 hrs so if you are a back of the pack runner, be aware it can get lonely if you are outside that range.
Things to watch out for:
1. med tent at start/finish only. Would be nice to have one at the marathon turnaround.
2. Not much in terms of finish line nutrition. stay close, shower, enjoy lunch at one of the several restaurants instead.

storm conditions this year added another level of difficulty for sure but certainly can’t hold weather against the organizers! They did a great job managing around the weather and the course/community support was still strong. Finish line support was well stocked and I felt well taken care of throughout all races. May go back again just for the weekend events!

Make sure to pay attention to the course map elevation. Mile 12 is a steep paved trail through a nature area that stalls momentum. Great downtown area and very pedestrian friendly community.
Great swag bag full of goodies.

The marathon course is front end loaded with the hills which can burn you out if you aren’t ready for them. The back half is more gentle rolling through residential and older commercial areas but the course and community support is pretty good. The end is a series of turns which will make you second guess if it will ever end but you will be rewarded with a very nice finish line area by the art museum and sculpture garden.

I really enjoyed this race. I’m not a huge fan of loops but the course varied enough along the river that it didn’t get too repetitive. They include a fun challenge to relay a stuffed santa from water stop to water stop for a little additional prize at the end which really had me paying attention to try and keep tabs on his position.
With such a good post-race party including Ice cream, drinks and plenty of snacks in a great location downtown, I was surprised it was <300 runners. If you are looking for a fun and friendly race in Indiana with a pretty flat and fast course, this would be a great option.

This race is pretty well known for having unpredictable weather. this year, we had tornado sirens and hail around oklahoma city the night before the race but pretty great weather the day of the race. Plan for everything from sleet to full sun! Course was pretty great and the community support was truly among the best. Plenty of official and un-official snack and hydration stops along the way and lots of cheering. I parked in between the start and finish areas in the Arts garage. It made for an uncomfortable walk afterward but not too bad. Friends asked afterward if it was sad running by the memorial and, ya know, it wasn’t. It was respectful. 168 seconds of silence at the beginning, 168 flags along the course and banners of the 168 lined the finish approach. Great community and great race.

Loved the course. The weather for our particular race day was not pleasant with rain, gusts from 15-20 mph and some sleet but it’s always a roll of the dice so just come prepared with tanks or parkas. Springdale is a small town and it seemed they were not used to 2000 people showing up on a weekend so patience is important from the local service industry.

To start with: this was a covid-time race so future or past experiences may differ quite a bit.

I loved this race. The organizers did a good job of adhering to health dept guidelines required for holding the event. The start line had us all lined up in numerical order and spaced out with a rolling start about 5 secs apart. I was concerned this single file method would be congested with a narrow lane but it wasn’t an issue. It wasn’t difficult to find good areas for passing with plenty of space. The course support was well stocked and the finish line staff kept things moving along. At the finish, the results tent provided individual result cards as you finished with complete stats so you didn’t need to huddle around a posted printout.
Overall, great job!

The first half of the marathon course was fantastic. It’s downhill with plenty of space and truly wonderful scenery. The second half, however, starts with a large uphill climb and continues along unshaded and busy roadway with not much shoulder in spots. Take sunscreen and plenty of water as aid stations were pretty spaced out near the end. The end of the course wound through neighborhood areas and was not marked well. Swag included a trucker hat?? Medal was unremarkable but in the shape of the state so that’s nice.
