    The Springfield marathon was held in a rural setting on account of COVID-19. Just outside of New Berlin, Illinois this race was a 2 loop course throughout corn and soybean fields. I loved being able to see as far as the eye could see among the flatland fields. The race director was very successful in making changes to his event to provide this race. If he can run a good race during a pandemic then he will be sure to please during normal types of years. This race course was very flat compared to The historic route in Springfield proper, so I am told. If the race is ever held again in New Berlin, the odds are set up to favor you for a BQ.

    This was one of the most scenic runs I’ve been on. With Fall Colors changing, it was really nice to run to appreciate it. Don’t get me wrong, there was plenty of Road and gravel grind but the parts of nature made it well worth it. It was very high priced for what you got in swag. The medal was lame and screamed: I refuse to have any creativity. The post race was a 3 on a scale of 10. The Strenths was that it was Awesomely supported. Plenty of water stations (not enough porta potties) and the course had plenty of Rolling hills … gentle not anything too steep but by the last 10K, you didn’t want to see another hill.

    I also ran this marathon that year! The first half was well supported with people cheering you on, but then when you broke off from the half marathon course, you were pretty alone out in the middle of no where. LESS
