    This race has a 1 mile option at 8:30 and a 5k at 9am in downtownLagrange at the courthouse. They have a pavilion for runners to get their race packets, t-shirts and goody bag.
    The goody bag is one thing that the Courthouse Classic is know for. One of the sponsors (Miller Grocery) provides the goodies for each bag and you never know what you are going to get. The bag is a paper grocery sack so it really is a mystery until you open it up.
    The great part about this small town race is it has been going on for long enough it draws a pretty nice size group of runners and some with quite a bit of speed.
    At 8:30 they had the start of the competitive mile in which a friend of ours was running. He ended up winning with a 4:52 <–speedy!
    We started slowly moving toward the start line so we would be ready for the race to start right at 9. Just a few minutes before the hour the officials called the runners over, gave a brief explanation of the course and got us lined up. And we were off!!! It starts on a brick road right next to the courthouse with a low grade incline right off the bat. We made a right turn and then a left onto a road heading out of town. This portion was mostly going to be out and back. There were a couple of easy rolling hills but nothing major at all.
    They had a water stop positioned just after the turn around.wouldn’t.
    Just after mile 2 we turned into a sub-division and had a hill to run up
    After I finished up we cruised through the snacks which was a nice spread of Subway, bananas, grilled chicken sausages, Gatorade and water.
    They had some great prizes for overall winners (giant frosted cookies) and trophies. Oh and they had a kids race in which each kids name was announced and they received a medal. <–pretty cool stuff to those little ones.
