    Race is out and back on a closed road mostly along the river. Course is wide and straight so there is plenty of room to pass/be passed. Water stops were spot on and volunteers were nice and competent. A few rolling hills 500 elevation gain.

    Race is fairly small a few hundred people for the half and 10k combined which start at the same time. Course was easily followed.. A local race with most from Minneapolis area. Parking was a bit of a challenge with spots filling up fast, get there early or take the free mass transit.

    Race website and emails had everything you needed to know. Shirt and medal were ok. Nothing special.

    Very impressed by this race and will definitely do it again. It was a really fun course, great aid stations. There is one boring stretch at the half-way point but it doesn’t last very long. This is one of the most organized races I have participated in.

    Always a great race. This is a Minnesota tradition. Well organized, beautiful course and always without fail unpredictable weather. I really enjoy this race and would recommend it. They also offer a 10K and 5K (I think).
