    This was the first year for the Palace City Kiwanis Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at the World’s Only Corn Palace. The Corn Palace was open before the race for day of the race packet pickup and also to keep us warm before the start of the race. It was chip timed by allsportscentral.com, and had fall decorations at the start/finish line. There were water stations with Gatorade about every 2.5-3 miles. I didn’t see any mile markers until about mile 6, but I was told that they put them out every mile, but maybe the were blown down by the wind. There were about 160 runners this year, not bad for a town that really doesn’t have much of a running culture. There was an announcer that called out people’s names at the finish, and there were custom medals shaped like the Corn Palace handed out at the finish line. I attended the pre-race packet pickup on Saturday, and picked up a cloth swag bag with a long-sleeved t-shirt, water bottle with the Corn Palace logo, band aids, a honey stinger energy gel, tea bags, and miscellaneous coupons. All in all, I would say it was a huge success, especially for the first year. I foresee it become even bigger and better in future years, and look forward to running it again.
