    This was my first time participating in the Iron Horse Half Marathon. The course has many rolling hills, with a few steeper hills. The course was out and back in 2 different directions and ending uphill. I was told that the course had slightly changed from 2018. The scenery was beautiful. Lots of horse farms with horses out running. Some were rolling in the dirt which caused dust to blow towards the course, but that was okay, because the horses took my mind off of running. A friend and I stopped to take pictures of them. There was an adequate amount of water stops, and some providing sword as well. The medal was great! Heavy and beautiful for their 10th anniversary. The course ended at the edge of the midway festival so it was nice to be able to look at arts and crafts afterwards. The shirts were short sleeve technical shirts. However, mine was too small so I’m impatiently hoping for a shirt swap 5 days after the race. This is my biggest disappointment about races. I feel that there should be enough shirts available to swap.

    The Iron Horse is a really well-run race through horse country in the small town of Midway, KY. The course begins near downtown, and runs out-and- back on a country road, coming back through town and running out-and-back in the other direction. The great thing about this is that you get to see all of the other runners twice. The course is pretty hilly, but the run to the finish line is downhill.
    There were plenty of aid stations out there with water and some had Sword. And plenty of Port o potties along the course.
    Medals are always great. Nice Brooks long sleeved tech shirts. Opportunity to purchase other race swag.
    In some previous years, they have had burgers/barbecue at the finish area. I don’t know if this didn’t happen because it was cold and rainy and no one wanted to stick around. In any case, there was a good variety of post-race snacks.
