    Flat, pavement course with few spectators and small runner volume (200 in 2017) but well marked and organized and allows you zone out, establish your pace for a good race time. It is best to stay in a hotel at the Westgate Entertainment District so can catch the bus that leaves at 515-530AM to take runners to the start in Buckeye. The race is predominantly on flat, open areas with fields backed by large scenic hills and periods where the course winds through some small quiet neighborhoods. There was adequate waters stations and GU at miles 10 and 20 (approximately). The temp was cool with a misting rain for 2017 which made for perfect running conditions. The finish line area at Westgate is fun and great for spectators and family. Running through the Luke AFB was interesting because of the proximity of the of the course to the fighter planes. If you like, what is currently, a relatively small race that allows you to essentially set your own pace, this is a nice option early in the year. I found the volunteers and the responsiveness of the organizers (through social media and on the day of the race) to be superior.

    Congrats on punching your ticket for Boston 2018, Rich – sounds like everything came together nicely and you took full advantage. Safe travels and good luck in Liverpool and Laugavegur this summer, look forward to hearing how both races go! LESS
