    This was a very laid back, but yet well organized ultra. The race director and volunteers were very helpful and patient. It was a fundraiser for the local cross country teams, and so many of the volunteers were cross country runners, but they were very polite and helpful. You really couldn’t ask for more. With just one exception, the course was very well marked and easy to follow, which is not always the case for a road ultra. The race director was upfront about the course being long, and he was right. It was about 34 miles in length according to my GPS watch. It was a very scenic course that took us through the towns of Brainard, Loma, and Valpraiso, NE, and then back to Loma and Brainard, NE. About 70% of the course was on dirt or crushed gravel roads, 15% on a straight bike path with white crushed gravel, 10% on a cross country course around a lake, and 5% on paved roads. There were a lot of hills, but most were runnable. Swag included a long-sleeved t-shirt and a very nice natural walnut finisher’s award. I survived the heat this year, but just barely.
