This was my second full marathon so I knew a bit more what to expect. The first half of the course was great – shady and up and down. The second half leveled out and was just HOT by the time I reached it. There were plenty of aid stations and I loved that multiple ones had gel/fuel as well as water and electrolytes. The last few water stops even had ICE. So much appreciated. Since it was a PR for me I was bummed they didnt have a PR Bell to ring. The fruit enhanced ice water and live music at the finish line festival was greatly appreciated as well.

Overall I would recommend this race. It is small so you are never crowded. Water stations are almost every mile!!! The only negative was a lack of direction in some areas. They had fliers on poles/trees telling you which way to go but it made you think twice before making a turn. Also, at the finish line there was no bottle of water, just little cups like on the course. Nice shirt and medal was just OK. I would run this race again.

This is my go to race each year. The miles along the beach are HOT and LONG. If you can survive these you are good to go. The beer garden/band is always a great time. Very well run and organized over all.

I love these guys. Ran 2 of their races last year. Yellowstone was tough!!! It is a trail race!!!!! Steep up and steep down. Gorgeous scenery if you can take your eyes off the course long enough to look around. Smores at the finish line are a bonus 🙂 Great bling too! Looking forward to doing The Everglades next.

Very well run race series. They really communicate all details perfectly. GU and electrolytes at every aid station. Bling is amazing!! Since I train at sea level the elevation was a killer but the view kept you going. Jackson Hole is a great place to spend some time. Weather was perfect! Highly recommend this race!!

First time doing this race. If you are looking for a race in Michigan I recommend this one. Free shuttle from the hotel to and from the race. Indoor place to stay warm before the race. Free meal after the race. Tons of cheering support along the course. Gummie bears and popsicles stops on the course. Scenic finish around a lake. Double bling if you run Indy or Kenosha the day before. Overall a great experience!!!
