    This course doesn’t get enough PR. This is maybe one of the most beautiful courses that aren’t in a national park, along the beach, or on top of a mountain. This is a far better course than Run the Bluegrass, which is listed as a bucket list or must-do list race on many websites.

    The parking for this race is fine, plenty of space, but you do have to walk a couple of minutes to the start line. You run through the college campus at the finish and it’s a beautiful campus.

    Race day packet pickup was easy, indoors, and quick. There isn’t much in the way of swag that is better or worse than any other race, but there are INDOOR bathrooms and a warm place to wait indoors while you wait for the race to start. It’s a lobby of a student center or something, but plenty of space.

    The course itself is not terribly difficult but it isn’t the easiest course either. It’s got a few hills, is on gravel and paved, but I noticed these less given the beauty of the course.

    There are aid stations on the course, AND porta poddies, which isn’t as common if you aren’t at the start/finish line. I’ve done this course twice and the second time the course and organization were FAR better than the first time. It wasn’t bad the first time, but it was extraordinary the second time around, a few years later, in March 2020 just a few days before the Covid shutdown.

    Great course because there is NO traffic. Entire race was on closed campus roads. Perfect size event. Didn’t have to park far away, hotels were not full. Easy to find and get to. Very quiet run thru the countryside.
