    The Mainly Marathons events are my favorite racing events, period. They do a great job of catering to the runners and the overall organization of these events are down right awesome. I highly recommend any of their race series.

    This race was part of the Mainly Marathon Prairie Series, which is notoriously hot and frequently humid. Fortunately, this course had quite a bit of shade. The route started at the Mainly Marathon “camp” and zig-zagged through a combination park/recreational complex in Riverside Park in a short out-and-back, and then proceeded to another out-and-back underneath the freeway overpass to a pretty stretch along the Big Sioux River. The first few hundred yards of the second out-and-back was open to the sun, but the rest did have quite a bit of shade. The advantage to this double out-and-back is that you ran by the aid station about every 0.5 to 0.75 miles. This makes it easier to keep hydrated and fueled without having to wear a hydration vest or carry a hand-held bottle. I thought this course was better than the Mainly Marathon races in Nebraska and Missouri that I ran last year as it was more scenic and had a little more shade. A bonus was the sighting of several white-tailed deer, including two new-born fawns along the paved trail that went along the Big Sioux River.
