This was an absolutely beautiful race and was enjoyable course to run. It’s also a simple course great for beginners! However I was disappointed with a lot of the logistics of the race. When I showed up they had me in the system but no stuff or bib for me and wasn’t able to get it to me until 8min before which obviously caused a whole host of problems. Then I was told I would be receiving a free mug and beer but the lady got the races mixed up and the swag offered for each. But most disappointing of all is that after finishing the half there was absolutely no water, Powerade, bananas or nothing. When I finally asked someone where I have to go to get these race essentially as I just finished running 13 miles(!), the response I got was that they only had one case of water left and they were saving it for the red river double. I have several problems with that but hello your desire to go cheap and not get adequate supplies for a race your charging people $50 for is not my problem… I think my $50 bought me AT LEAST a daggum water bottle. Biggest thing they need to change is to plan ahead much better. It’s unacceptable that a race that size struggles to get the basics together. Also, hello at the very LEAST water is a necessity for you to have and provide after a race!! Also, where was the first aid station or medics for the event? I was shocked they had no first aid or med tent ready to respond and help at the site. If you want a beautiful and easy course this race was great! However, it was logistically a nightmare and very very disappointing start to finish. I’m just glad my friend had thought to pick me up a water when he went to go get breakfast otherwise I would have finished a half marathon and had NOTHING to get the instant water and refuel the body needs.
