Every runner should do this race. Although it rained the entire race – it was still amazing.
Good points: easy to get to Cincinnati, plenty of hotels and restaurants, everything within walking distance including start & finish, great expo, lots of swag to purchase, lots of swag included, reasonable start time, plenty of water stops, amazing crowd support (even in the rain), still lots of choices for snacks for back of the packers, great medal, one of the most organized races I’ve ever done. Bad points – half course of full of hills in the beginning. overall – loved it!

This is a must do race for Nevada. It provides the best of both worlds – Las Vegas and beautiful Mt Charleston. The host hotel – The Tuscany – was fine for me because it was not in the middle of the strip. The packet pickup was a little far out of town but it was next to an upscale outlet mall and there were lots of places to shop and eat. I paid the $40 for the direct shuttle from The Tuscany and it took us straight to the top of the starting line (at 3:30 am!) It was extremely cold but the race provided those aluminum foil blankets. Also it was pitch dark when the race began but you got to enjoy the sunrise! The first 6 miles were downhill which takes no effort to run. The only bad thing was that the rest of the half was through a flat residential area. The race also provides free race pictures and some decent after race snacks. The shirt was pretty good and also a goody bag and hat were given. There was also some additional shirts to buy. Overall – I would highly recommend this race – easy to get in and out of and such great race production!

Asheville is such a unique city – I was really disappointed in this race. The organization was great with plenty of pre-race emails and easy packet pickup. I stayed at the host hotel which was nice, convenient and reasonably priced. The expo was very sad – nothing much to look at or purchase. We were shuttled from the host hotel to the starting point. It was unseasonably cold and there was no place to get out of the weather and it was still pitch dark before the race. The race started (without the National Anthem) and immediately went downhill. The majority of the race is doubling around this scruffy park along the river. The finish was at an old industrial parking lot. It was such a sad and dirty location for a finish. Asheville is such a quaint city – I was sad not to see more of it. And for the record – the course was nowhere near the Biltmore mansion. I could find no after snacks or party but maybe that’s because I finished so late. There was also little to no parking for spectators. Although the course was disappointing – the medal and shirt were great! I would not do this race again.

This is a great race for a weekend getaway. Seaside is in the Florida panhandle between Destin and Panama City. Very expensive and bougee. The race course runs parallel with the ocean but you never see it. Parking is a nightmare. I would suggest buying a parking pass. The swag is great – large Vera Bradley tote bad – nice medal and t-shirt. The weather in February is usually in the upper 60’s No after party to speak of. Flat course with one rolling hill. Fundraiser for the local school. Plenty of water stations but little crowd support.

I flew into the Huntington airport – a car is a must. Packet pick-up was far away from everything and hard to find. No expo except for some clearance stuff from a running store. Swag was terrible! – a cheap t-shirt and toboggan – with the option to purchase a fleece pullover and long sleeve t-shirt the morning of the race (who has money with them then?). Start was uneventful. The course was nice and flat – but boring. There was a short run through a park by the river and another park that was full of leaves (was afraid I’d slip because they were wet) otherwise they picked the ugliest parts of town to run through. The saving grace of the race was of course the finish into the Marshall University stadium. We were given a football to run through the finish line with. Photographers were in two places but there was no info on how to get pictures. There were plenty of water stations and that was the only crowd support. Couldn’t find the food afterwards. I was thinking I could eat at the Huntington airport – but they only had vending machines. The medal was very nice. Overall, I was disappointed.

Easy travel, good airport and hotel choices adjacent to the race start and finish. No expo – just a packet pickup in a bar in the area. Swag was a shirt and water bottle. Shuttle buses were plentiful and start time was reasonable. Here’s where it was bad – the course was so boring. We ran by every single house in Green Bay – but at mile 12 you see Lambeau Field approaching! Running around the entire inside of the stadium was amazing! I was disappointed in the pictures – the photo spot did not do the stadium or the finish line justice. Plenty of water stops and volunteer support. The medal was ugly and after race food was down the street from the finish at a bar. Not sure if I would do it again but glad I did it once.

Just an OK race. It was my first time to St. Louis. The expo was hard to find and had very disappointing vendors. I love to buy extra shirts and running stuff but there was nothing to purchase. The race started at a reasonable time and the shuttles to the start were plentiful. The course was hilly and boring. Very little crowd support but plenty of water stations and water (and I’m always near the end). The medal was good but the shirt was tacky. Post race food was pretty good. There was some type of famous gooey cake that everyone was excited about. If you are only doing one Missouri – pick another race. If you want to see St. Louis and the Arch – it’s a good choice.

Overall – this was a great race. I stayed at the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino across the street from the packet pick-up and finish. No expo – but there were some other shirt choices and stuff to purchase. It was a point to point race – so that means an early morning, dark, and cold bus ride to the starting point but I met some nice people on the bus. The course was flat with beautiful scenery UNTIL MILE 12 – which was an uphill interstate ramp that led to the finish in the baseball stadium. I couldn’t get to the airport after the race because of that interstate closing so I had to drive 20 miles out of the way to catch my flight – so plan accordingly. Great crowd support and ample water stations. A great December and Mississippi race

Fargo was a nice surprise!
* easy pickup and great expo (Fargo Dome is 1 mile from the airport!)
* no shirt at pickup – some excuse about shirts not making it in time – but will mail (we’ll see)
* absolutely no pre-race swag except for 4 free safety pins although the medal was nice and large.
* stayed at the Radisson Blu downtown. Great hotel but was impossible to get to after the race because all the roads were closed. I would suggest staying somewhere close to the airport. Also did not charge a late checkout fee (had a plane to catch the same day of the race)
* Crowd support was amazing! Loved running through the neighborhoods – everyone participated and supported even for the slow runners at the end!
* post race food – amazing doughnuts at the end!
* free photos
* great flat course
A “must do” for runners

Of course running through Acadia National Park was incredibly beautiful but this was one of the the most pitiful races I have ever done. First – when I went to pick up my packet – there was only one person working at the pick up table. I had a few questions that I asked him and he didn’t know the answer to any of them. He couldn’t even give me the address of where the race started – just a general location. The shirt was tacky and the medal was nothing special. Also included was a $12 park entrance pass. That was it. I wouldn’t complain but this race cost much more than other races I’ve done. I realize it was a fundraiser for the YMCA and that’s good as I love my YMCA here in Knoxville. There were a few people along the course who were encouraging and friendly. Also – it was super hilly (as advertised). If you’re already planning to visit Acadia and the date matches the race date – do it but don’t make this a destination race for Maine.

Good race. The friendliest and most supportive fellow racers I’ve every seen. No community support (signs or cheering). The course was also shared by Tulsans just out enjoying their greenways while we were running. The shuttle system was very disorganized – we had to ask a total stranger to take us across the river back to our car where “designated” parking was after the race. Also there was nothing flashy. No great start or finish enthusiasm. No food to speak of, but I understand because of covid. As a turtle – I found the course nice and flat. Overall – a good race but wouldn’t do it again

This race was a nice surprise considering all the restrictions because of Covid 19. The organizers did an amazing job making you feel like times were “normal” again. From the drive through packet pick-up to the specific time starts and smaller corrals – they did their best to accommodate runners. I stayed at the Gulf Park Hilton and would NOT recommend. It was over-priced and not accommodating to those participating in the race. The race was 80% through a swampy state park with the highlight seeing a real alligator watching us. It was sad not getting a medal when crossing the finish line (the medal was given during the packet pick-up) and I missed not having an expo. Overall it was a great race and so fun to participate with happy running people.

Loved this race – why?
* very organized
* everything easy for a single traveler
* great expo – lots of purchase choices
* great start time and location to hotel
* the greatest crowd support all along the race
The only thing I didn’t like – not enough water stops – I always need more – especially near the end.
Definitely a must do for Arkansas

Loved this race – it was very well organized – course was mostly flat – scenery was just ok – sad that we didn’t run by the Alamo. The absolute best part was the 1/2 mile run through a park where about every 6 feet there was someone holding an American flag on both sides – also with pictures of veterans who had died from that area. Made me so proud to be part of such a great country – I could have run for miles through that! Best expo with lots of purchase choices. Host hotel was right at the start line. Only negative – the race finished at a park that was a little far from the start – had to walk a long way to get back to the hotel and no pre-race meal options. Overall it was a great race!
