    I really enjoyed this race both for the course (just enough hills to make you work for it, without it being too impossible) and the atmosphere. It is a smaller race and a little disorganized at the start… a little unclear where to go for the start, and I think they shot off the start gun before everyone could hear major announcements. This being said, everyone racing was so friendly and it was a great time!
    Post-race BBQ was a major plus!

    Nice course that passes thru 4 covered bridges. Most of the race is on country roads that are still open to traffic. Rolling hills from mile 5-13. None are huge but it felt like I was going up and down the entire time during this part of the course.

    The biggest draw of this race is the covered bridges. In fact you’ll run over four bridges throughout the race. The first couple of miles are on paved roads. About half way through the race we switched to a trail.

    At the end of the race they had a lovely BBQ with hamburgers, hotdogs, corn etc.
