    Make sure to pay attention to the course map elevation. Mile 12 is a steep paved trail through a nature area that stalls momentum. Great downtown area and very pedestrian friendly community.
    Great swag bag full of goodies.

    Make sure you train hills and for cold. It often drops 20 or 30 degrees a day or two before the race. Or it rains. And it’s got some tough hills. But cool medals!

    This was a well put together race, the Friday pick up was wonderful lots of vendors at the expo. And lots of fun stuff for families to do at the square. The race was so wonderful, course, Swag, volunteers, and supporters was amazing. I loved how the whole 13.1 was full of water stations. Supporters cheers, music, so much intertainment on the whole course. It’s a must run if you have not. I definitely plan to run this one next year! When I finished the races I felt so happy and proud to be part of such a great race. Thank you all for a amazing race!

    I honestly picked this race because it was an easy drive from KC area. I did this race solo, not knowing a single soul. The race was very well supported!!! every 1 to 2 miles an aid station.. then after mile 8, every mile there was an aid station. oh Mile 10. I knew this was where the incline started… it was very gradual on a paved walking/bike path. Very scenic and beautiful.. the entire time. Mile 11.5 it got steadily steeper.. It got even more steeper. but at mile 12, i took the long stepping strides, head down,just too get thru. Mile 12.95.. done.. back on road and you could hear the finish. Definitely will do this race again!! Swag bag was loaded!! And you get a finisher hoodie along with finishers medal.

    Great organization all throughout. Right from teasers for admission dates to post finish stations. There are good number of aid and water stations we barely felt any cause for concern during 25F temperature winter storm run. The entire run is so motivating with the crowd and their cheering and the funny posters all along the run. Definitely recommended and must run!!
