    I didn’t know what to expect with this race but Gadsden is a cute little town and the race is small enough that you don’t need to worry about parking, which is plentiful anyway, just across the street from the brewery, where you start, and the brewery is two blocks from the downtown center. The course is nice, featuring some of Gadsden’s highlights. I enjoyed this course and will probably do it again next year.

    There are port-a-johns at the start and at most aid stations, and there were probably five (?) aid stations. These stations had sports drink and water. The course is described as “moderately challenging” on the website but I would probably describe it as pleasant and rolling. This race has the potential to get significantly larger if word spreads regionally how nice this race is. But I think there were maybe only 150’ish runners for the 10k and HM, which started together.

    There was a nice lunch at the end but as is typical, nothing substantial for vegetarians. I made do with the protein bars and potato chips.

    Overall, nicely done, Gadsden! Great event.
