    Over the years I have gone out of my way to drive thru this area and eat at the diner (now a pizza place) in Viola. When I saw there was a half marathon there, it was a must and it did not disappoint. Incredible.
    The whole production was a to me an excellent fit. Packet pickup all day before and morning of the race.
    The man directing parking was a virtuoso in the art, welcoming, and filling up the grass field like tetras. The start in the town square was well organized. The scenery was fantastic the whole way. There were not mile markers, which for me only added to the experience, I just ran and enjoyed the views. When I finally looked at my watch and saw it was mile 12, I was actually disappointed it was going to be over so soon.
    The water/gatorade stations were plentiful and well spaced, and there were even 4 very young future farmers giving out lemonade from their driveway – that was a first for me and welcome.
    The overcast and low 50s was perfect running weather. My watch had 495 ft of elevation, just gentle inclines. It was a full 13.1 miles of wonderful rural scenery. I am so glad I was one of the lucky 150 or so runners on the course today.

    Race is on asphalt roads between pastures and farms mainly. Each mile is marked. Plenty of aid stations with enthusiastic people (aid stations are rated by runners and best rated station wins a nice prize). Nice refreshments at end. Technical short sleeve shirt and nice medal. Results posted day of race. Several sprinklers along the route since it was hot. Photo shows shirt, medal and age group award.
