Two days of run events (New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day), with technical running shirts and finisher medals for everyone. There’s also a special perk for those who complete multiple running events over the two days – we know how runners love their bling! December 31 – morning New … MORE

    I told myself I wouldn’t do any more back to backs, but my mom talked me into it. For as tough as completing back to back doubles, they make it worth it! The swag is amazing! If you are going to do this race, I would suggest preparing for ANY weather! I would also suggest having 2 pairs of shoes just in case. Such a great race to do with friends and family!

    This was the 2nd race of the weekend. It was difficult because I was still exhausted from the day before and had not yet recovered. The same course as the day before, so it got annoying when I was not close to being done. The medal was WAY worth it!! It was as big as my head.

    This was my first back to back. I had just been cleared to exercise again after recovering from 2 stress fractures in my foot. The first day (this one) was very wet and cold. I wish I had brought 2 pairs of shoes because of how wet everything was after this race. The course is a down and back loop (6.55 miles). It’s in a park and had a decent amount of scenery. Well put on and the swag was amazing!

    Nothing really special except a very flat course. The ground was very wet when you get off the sidewall. Sometimes hard to pass with two way traffic. MORE

    This was my first half marathon ever, and as tough as that is, I loved it. It was a small race, with amazing people and volunteers. The Aid stations were adequate and nice, it was a loop course and beautiful for a ND girl in December!
    This was a pretty relaxed race on mostly sidewalks.

    I have run this event twice. Last time I ran the double double (5k & half both new years eve and day). Great challenge. Well run event. Somewhat no frills but worth the admission and just a fun way to spend new years eve and day. Plenty of parking. Race is on a paved park trail, two laps makes the half marathon and four for the full. Flat course. I will run this event again. Standards post race snacks, bananas, granola, water, and chips. Race medals for all distances and if you complete a challenge you get a plate that all the medals attach to for display or wearing. They have other well run events that I have run.
