    Starts atop Grandad Bluff and the first 1.5 mile is a steep descent. After the descent, the course if flat and finishes along the Mississippi River. Not suggested for first time half marathoners; unless you’ve trained extensively on hills ascents and descents.

    Positive: Great course support and volunteers.
    -A mostly scenic run with some great views
    -Decent amount of people cheering along course
    -Nice shirt, easy packet pickup
    -Good post race food and even a free beer

    Negatives:
    -The shuttle to race start was kind of a mess. Race started late because of this.
    -Too few port a potties at start line.
    Some course notes
    -Though beautiful the run down bluff can be hard on knees and other joints.
    -Course though mostly beautiful has boring stretches in residential areas.
