    Running all night in July in Missouri on a 400 meter track might seem appealing to some, but there are some advantages. The aid station is always available whenever you need it, and you can always see the location of your competitors. The Realfeel temperature this year was 108 degrees F. at the 6 pm start, but there was a little breeze on one side of the track. There were some scattered clouds, so at least the sun wasn’t bearing down on us before sunset. It seemed like it took quite a while to cool down after sunset, probably because of the humidity.

    The timing company for the event was from Show Me Running Company, and they had a monitor at the start/finish that you could check at the end of each lap to see how many laps were completed. There was also a display of Christmas lights at the finish and Christmas music was played throughout the race. The aid station had a good selection of ultra food, but unfortunately, they let people reach in with their hands to take food, which is probably not a good idea during the Covid pandemic. There were relatively few participants, which was a shame considering this was a well-run and well-organized race. Top finishers were given hanging Christmas ornaments and runners were given a running shirt at packet pickup.
