Course: Start at Ross-Ade and head out through areas of WL then heading across the river to Lafayette, coming back and going through campus. The finish line is back at Ross-Ade. For someone who hasn’t really seen much of campus in a few years, it was an enjoyable way to see it. But dang…there were HILLS!!! I’m not used to so many…especially late in the race which were KILLERS! There were plenty of water stops, but port-a-pots were few and far between! Course support: What can I say. I hoped for more from the students, but it was 8:00 on a Saturday morning. They were still sleeping. Swag: Loved the shirts, but definitely men’s sizes. For a size small woman I swim in it. Production: The race and on-site packet pick-up were very well organized. Snacks at the end were hit and miss. I got the last cookies and the water was not bottled (BUT available in cups). It was pretty much a help yourself to goodies atmosphere. Like I said, I was VERY excited about this race. While it wasn’t my favorite (and it definitely isn’t a PR course), it was fun and I would probably run it again. DIFFICULTY 3 PRODUCTION 4 SCENERY 4 SWAG 3 Please login to reply to this review.
