Pros:
-Great scenery throughout Des Moines. The course takes you through city and country areas and it helps keep you engaged throughout.
-Hills weren’t extremely challenging but just enough.
-There are a good amount of spectators throughout the entire course to help you keep going.
-They had a great variety of sugary/salty items to be handed out during the course (donuts, gummy bears, twizzlers).
-Many locals were outside their homes and cheering for runners.
-Organization of event was well planned and registration was smooth. It was during a fitness expo so you could grab your registration materials and also check out relevant vendors for runners.
-Swag was great! Included is a nice jacket with the race logo and information for runners. Also, they have practical running supplies and runners nutrition in the bag.
-Overall, great running environment and atmosphere

Cons:
-At first, there were so many runners with the half marathoners and full marathoners combined (for the first 1-2 miles I believe) and it was harder to get started. Eventually, we split and it was able to be broken up.
