    I loved this race! It is a pretty flat course and the scenery is great. You also get to run in two states which is pretty cool.
    Then end of the full course is hard because it’s a down and back so mentally that is tough. I would definitely recommend this course for a first timer or someone looking to get a PR!

    The half is flat besides the first few miles. Not a lot of shaded areas. Running across the Arsenal bridge is not very fun. They put carpets over the grates, but you lose a lot of energy. I wish we could just run on the sidewalk part of the bridge. Additionally when the race gets tough the last three miles there are limited aid stations with water and people to cheer you on.

    This race offers a pump and run option for all distances for those that want to combine cross training performance with running.
    There are plenty of aid stations along the course, which winds around quad cities and waterfront.
