    The 2019 event was postponed one day from Saturday to Sunday by the threatening weather; the communication from race organizer Missouri Runs was good. They set up another packet pickup on Saturday, which was helpful since the first pickup was 11-5 on a Friday.
    Swag included a pint glass and quarter zip tech pullover. The finishers medal was cool as well.
    Race parking was limited in the park. Shuttle service from the Family Arena parking lot across the river in St. Charles arena was smooth and efficient.
    The course starts and ends around the lake in Creve Coeur Park, follows a paved path toward the Missouri River, crosses the river and covers a brief section of the Katy Trail, then comes back on largely the same route (but a different side of the lake). The course’s biggest hills are the approaches to the bridge on both sides of the river. And there is an uphill around mile 2 leaving the park and getting into the bike trail, which is a downhill for mile 11 or so. Otherwise, largely flat.
    The weather ended up perfect on race day. A little wind was blowing from the west, particularly noticeable at the end, running the last quarter mile or so on the north end of the lake.
    Adequate aid stations on the course and I believe there were race photographers but otherwise not many people along the course. The only place for spectators other than the park is a parking spot near the Katy Trail in St. Charles County. But this is a good course to take in the scenery in the flats running toward the bridge and then crossing the river.

    This was a great race around Creve Coeur lake in a suburb of St. Louis. The half marathon course starts at the lake and goes to the Missouri River and then down to the Katy trail and then back. It is pretty flat except going from the Katy Trail back up to the bridge to cross the Missouri River. The volunteers were great. Swag-wise, you get a Tshirt, cookies (That were amazing), free beer, a pint glass (Would be better if they would put the beer in the pint glass), and a medal. The only negative is that I wish they would start the 7K either earlier or later than the half marathon so that when the transition comes, you don’t have to get behind those that are turning.
