    Aid stations every 2 miles stocked with volunteers, water, Gu, bananas, oranges, strawberries, goldfish, and mini pretzel rods. I found this to be an impressive spread!
    Small race – 36 full marathoners, but you start with the 1/2 marathoners. So it feels a little more impressive.

    Beautiful waterfalls, views of cattle farms, green foliage, & interesting rock formations

    Cool medal – wooden

    Volunteers – All but 1 of the aid stations were manned. Think about it – for a 36 person race, avg 2 volunteers/aid station is quite touching. Around mile 18, there was a lady who was sitting in her car because of the pouring rain. When she saw us approaching, she ran towards us with a tray of goodies. I immediately teared up, touched by the kindness.

    Cars – There were cars on the route, but they gave you a very wide birth.


    Hills – this could be a plus for some people. The hills on this course kicked my butt! I walked most of the ups and jogged the downs while trying my best to preserve my quads.

    Pitchy roads – some of the roads were pretty pitchy, which contributed to sore feet & ankles post-race.

    *Note: The 2019 course was detoured she to heavy rain & flood warnings. I’m not sure if the normal course includes the 3+ hills that kicked my butt!
