This race was small and well organized. The course was very challenging with lots of long, steep climbs & downhills, but the scenery was worth it. The course was beautiful with views of the mountains and red rocks. They do allow packet pick-up on race day. The only downside is the swag. The shirt and medal didn’t have the year on them. And that was the only swag. However they did have a variety of post race food including some soup which was a nice way to warm up after the race. I ran this for my Nevada race. I would recommend it to others!

This race had the whole package! They had a nice, small expo with lots of freebies and gave free rides up to Scotts Bluff monument during packet pick-up. There were buses to the start. You could hang out in a nice heated building before the start with bathrooms along with free food and drinks. The course was very pretty, running around Scotts Bluff monument and on the Oregon Trail. The finish had an assortment of post race food, free massages & free beer. They had prize money and nice age group awards. It’s a very small race so there’s a better chance you could win an award and/or prize money. This race exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend it for Nebraska!

I loved this race! I picked it as my West Virginia race and am glad I did. The swag was awesome! We got a nice gender specific jacket, stocking cap and duffel bag. The medal is great too- with the Marshall University logo and stadium on it. The course is 2 loops that goes through Harris Riverfront Park, through Huntington, on the John Ritter Trail and through John Ritter Park, through campus and finishes on the football field in the Marshall University stadium. On your last loop through campus at the end you were given a flower to put on the Memorial Fountain in memory of the victims of the 1970 plane crash which was touching. Then when you finished you could carry a football across the finish line which I thought was unique and cool! The race was organized very well! Great volunteers, plenty of aid stations, good post race food and free beer at the finish. The one thing that could be improved was to put the miles on the course map. The stadium was open before the start so you could use the bathrooms in it. And you could park for free at the stadium and have your car very close to the start and finish. I highly recommend this race!

The race was very hilly, but very scenic. It was well organized. I like the lobster shaped medal! I felt like there should have been more cones up along the course. Some of the course didn’t have a coned lane for the runners. In some of those spots there wasn’t much of a shoulder and vehicles were in both lanes so I felt like we were being pushed off the road.
