    I did this event in 2012 and it was extremely windy. As a two loop course, you got to see runners all along the way, but it was a winding path that did get a little bogged down at times. I travelled with a friend doing the 50 states and it was a nice one for her to get off her bucket list that we could drive to from Michigan.

    The course was a double out-and-back for the full marathon, so I was with the halfers for half of it, which was cool. I thought the double out and back would be brutal mentally, but it actually was fine, and I was by myself for less of the course as a result.

    The weather on raceraves shows that it was raining, but really only drizzling for an hour or so–very minimal precipitation. Weather was great for running–overcast and in the 40s.

    The race day pickup, parking, and organization were very smooth. Nice, low-key, race. Aid stations included pickle juice, coca-cola, and peanut M&Ms–nice.

    I will say that my Garmin registered 1100 feet of elevation gain. I would say that very little of the course was flat; it was either a gradual incline/decline (most of the middle section) or a steep section (near the U-turns).

    Overall, I signed up for this race coming off an injury and was not well trained. I was the last finisher (my first time as such), which was a blow to my ego.

    The race people were great, and encouraging. They kept the aid stations, finish line, photographer etc. open for me. (Free photos!) I ran with the ‘sweeper’ for the last 3 miles. I love runners! Always a common interest to chat about.

    I like the shirt being cotton (I have plenty of tech Ts) and it is attractive. The medal is large and bling-y.

    The logistics were very simple. Recommend the race!

    I ran this half as part of the Harvest 39.3 half Marathon Series. Due to how long ago it was and running those races all so close together, it difficult for me to remember distinct attributes of these races. I also squeezed in the Longview Half the same weekend of the last race. We did get good photos. I recall goofing around a lot of the race so my time was terrible, but it was a blast!

    This race is organized by the Trail Nerds of Kansas City, and those folks know how to produce a race! The location is very easy to get too, plentiful parking and lots of Pumpkin Pie at the finish! The scenery is awesome to take in with the beautiful glimpses of nature giving you a taste of what KC looked like before the city moved in. I really enjoyed the BNSF trains that regularly passed by. The course is a challenging course so you’ll have something to be proud of upon finishing. This is a small race but very well done.
