    This review is specific to my participation in 2018. The course is great. I live in La Crosse, so most of my training runs are in Hixon forest. It is beautiful. The awesome thing about this race is that it took me on some trails I didn’t even realize existed. My wife and I signed up sort of last minute and our lack of training showed. It had rained the day before and a bit the morning of and we were at the back of the pack. The trail had gotten pretty torn up by faster runners and there were sections that got so sloppy, my wife needed me to push or pull her up because she was sliding backwards. lol. We ended up walking a ton of the course and were probably pretty close to being dead last finishers, but we had a lot of fun anyway. The long sleeve shirts are nice. The pottery for finishers are nice touches as well, but maybe shouldn’t replace medals. Runners like to have something to hang around their necks.
    I would highly recommend traveling to La Crosse for this race as there are some really stunning overlooks, friendly volunteers, and fun semi-technical trails.
