What a great race! Only a few minutes from my house meant I got to sleep in my own bed the night before as a bonus! Race was well organized, the gravel trail felt nice on my knees and the scenery was pretty even if it not all that varied. Of course the tunnel is cool, but the ruts in the trail caused by the water in the tunnel were the worst part of the race, to be honest. The trail racing community is so awesome in Wisconsin and this race seems to really embrace that!

This was a very nice, low stress race. For 50-staters not wanting to spend a ton of money on Chicago and just want something low key, this is a great option. The medal is kinda small, but it matches the price. The trails are of course beautiful, and actually very flat meaning this was actually a fairly easy race.

This race was a big surprise. I hadn’t planned to run as this was just a couple weeks after TC, but at the EXPO (my wife was running the half) I just decided to go for it. I did not regret that. I got to run most of the first half with my wife, and the 2nd half of the race was really well supported, particularly by the college in town. Finishers medal is pretty cool.

This was my first marathon and I chose a great one. The expo was exciting and smooth. The energy at the starting line was electric. Even with the corral system, the first several miles were very congested, which I might have found more problematic if I had any real time goals, but as I mentioned, this was my first and all I wanted was to finish. The trails around the many lakes and fall colors made this course beautiful, and the aid stations, volunteers, and spectators were incredible. The long gradual uphill along Summit Ave felt tough, but the view from the end of the climb to the Capital and finish line below was amazing. Great race, would recommend.
