    The course for this well-run 12-hour ultramathon was run around the perimeter of the 2017 Outdoor Experience festival in Dayton, OH. The course was very flat except for one or two “speedbumps” and was relatively smooth except for a couple of roots on the far side of the course. There was one place along the course where the path ran between a lake and a water slide that was set up for the outdoor expo where there was only room for people to run single file, and it got kind of crowded with all of the people that were there. In general, all of the many events that were going on including live bands made for interesting distractions that kept me from getting bored on the course. I would rate the one aid station a 9.5 out of 10 because of the “real food” that was served including avocado and hummus wraps. The race differed from most 12-hour runs I’ve done before, as they required you to be moving on the race course at the end of the 12 hours in order to get a finisher’s medal. The large medal was a nice touch though, which is something that you don’t usually get in all ultramarathons. We are also supposed to get a personalized wooden finisher’s award in the mail, but I haven’t received it as yet. All in all, I had a very enjoyable day and would do it again if I have the chance.
