    Well-organized half-marathon with adequate aid stations and a nice health fair near the finish on the Arkansas State University campus.
    The course had a few little hills to navigate, one at around 6 miles and a gradual uphill toward the finish in the final mile. Nice run through town but not great scenery. The course is marked with cones in streets with multiple traffic lanes and motorists were good about being aware of runners. Most major intersections were manned with volunteers. One stretch in the second half was unclear whether runners should be on the left or right side of the road but there was very little traffic on that street (which had an “unofficial (unmarked)” aid station with doughnuts, Fireball and other alcohol drinks.) Good number of aid stations and course support for a smaller event.
    Starting line (slight uphill start) did not have a chip strip so all runners were on gun time. No splits offered on the course.
    Swag: The largest finishers medal of the eight half marathons I’ve run in the last six months. Very cool.
    I believe it has cash prizes to the very top finishers, and they had a masters winner as well as age groups. Nice award ceremony takes place on stage in the ASU convocation center, where a very large health fair is taking place. (Great chance to walk around and load up on free items like stress balls and pens).
    They were out of my size hoodie the day of the race, but offered a t-shirt or to be put a list for the hoodie. I received a nice fleece zip-up two weeks after the event.
    I came in the night before and filled up on pasta at Lazzari Italian Oven.
    I would recommend this run, and I will consider returning if it fits the schedule.
