    This is a small, local trail race consisting of repeating loops with a single, well stocked aid station that you pass by frequently where you can access drop bags and restrooms as well. Mostly technical single-track trails through the woods with some stretches across fields. Generally runable, with two major climbs – The Stone Steps and Gummy Bear hill, both found on the big loop.

    If this and the low entry fees were not enough of a selling point, the race director makes a point to congratulate all of the finishers as they cross the finish line to give them their medals. Additionally, they offer an early start for runners who think they need a little more time to finish. I’ve been to races where time cutoffs are strictly enforced, but this is not one of those races. They truly want to see everyone cross the finish line, even if it after the official close of the race.
    The shirts are soft, the age group prizes are unique, and the post-race stretching/massage put this one over the top.

    Very hilly 50K on the trails at Mount Airy Park in Cincinnati. Single aid station is extremely well stocked at the pavilion in the park, which you hit after each loop. Course is alternating loops 5+ miles / 3+ miles. Trails were well maintained.
