    I registered for this race after the Garmin Olathe Marathon scheduled for the same day was canceled.

    There was several COVID measures that were in place but compared to other races i have run during COVID, it appeared the most normal. Mask were “required” at the start and finish, race capacity, bottled water on aid stations, and wave started (including different start time for 10k/5k).

    The Marathon was basically one 14 mile loop and a 6 mile out and back. The trail was along the river, which seemed to be well maintained and covered with a plethora of parks (including one that was voted best in the USA). So there was several locations were supporters could see you. There were plenty of bathrooms along the course to include enough at the start/finish. Aid stations had bottled water (8 ounces), sports drink, and gels at 1 or 2. The course wasn’t marked with any mile markers, but the turnaround points and course was marked clearly.

    Swag included a TECH type t shirt and a nice big medal with the Golden Driller logo.

    The finish line included BEER, Burritos, and fresh fruit.

    This marathon is a small race. Due to Covid in 2021 they had a record number of marathoners. The race does not have mile markers. The race seems to cater to the shorter distance rather than the full. The trail was also under construction during the 2021 race. The overall race was nice but we were unable to park at the finish and there was no gear check. So we just sat there freezing afterwards with no foil blankets or dry clothes.

    Good race. The friendliest and most supportive fellow racers I’ve every seen. No community support (signs or cheering). The course was also shared by Tulsans just out enjoying their greenways while we were running. The shuttle system was very disorganized – we had to ask a total stranger to take us across the river back to our car where “designated” parking was after the race. Also there was nothing flashy. No great start or finish enthusiasm. No food to speak of, but I understand because of covid. As a turtle – I found the course nice and flat. Overall – a good race but wouldn’t do it again

    Fleet Feet puts on a great race. Runners expo is at the three local stores where one can buy just about any supply. The run is easy except for one hill. Many racers come from out town because of extended time limits. While I run these paths often I enjoy the competition with no traffic what so ever. Since it is relatively flat one can also get a PR on this course. Great race for a cheap price. Be careful it can be hot the end of April in Oklahoma.
