Though this was for a great cause, I was unimpressed overall for this race.

Let’s start with the week before the race. No email came in about race day instructions or packet pickup. When contacting the race coordinator they said ‘everything is on the website this year.’

As for the race itself, it started out 15 minutes late. Then we found out that it was a trail. 2+ miles down. 2+ miles back. The trail was very tight and was barely able to accommodate 3 runners wide.

There was no nutrition on this race, there was water and Gatorade though.

Medals….they looked like the kind of medals you would buy in bulk for a t ball team. Or went to Amazon and ordered the cheapest medals they could find in bulk. No specificity to the medal at all.

There was however some drinks/water/fruit at the finish line.

Runners and staff were very friendly though.

I do sort of feel like I almost have to do another Missouri race to get a medal for my 50 state wall though.

So i’m torn. I loved the race itself. The beginning was VERY rocky. We had to walk half practially a mile from the start line, and a mile from the finish line. There were so many people that you couldn’t go to the bathroom before hand. BUT there were portapottoes after they let the heat out, so there was that.

The expo was a huge let down. The potential to make something great was there, but it fell flat. Pretty much I would suggest paying the extra $50 to get the stuff the day of the race so you can save your money on a hotel the day before. I would also highly suggest doing the ST Judes bit. It’s a great cause, and you get pretty sweet stuff the day of the race.

It was a flat and fast course. Other than having to weave our way through thousands of people throughout the entire race, if you could start with the first heat, you could definitely PR here.

If you want to run for a race that the organizers actually care, this is your race. Great scenery. A bit difficult to breathe, but the course itself wasn’t super challenging.
