    I signed up for this race because I knew that I would be traveling through the area on the weekend of it. I’m glad I did, because it was a very laid back, small race. The course was on the concrete bike paths of the Poudre River Trail. The start was near where the Cache la Poudre River crossed highway 34 near Windsor, CO and extended to Island Grove in Greeley, CO and then back again to the start. The course was about as flat as you could get, with no major hills. Most of the course was along the riparian areas of the Poudre River and passed by farmland with cattle and even one area with prairie dogs. Along the back half, the course bordered several water-filled ponds formed from mining activity. The scenery wasn’t anything to write home about, but the excellent race organization made up for the shortfalls in scenic vistas. Swag included a technical running shirt, a finisher’s medal, and food and beer at the finish. Hydration on the course included unflavored Tailwind, water, and Coca cola at some of the aid stations. What impressed me the most was that the race director had to make a mid-race detour along the course due to downed power lines from a storm the night before. She did this seamlessly, and even got volunteers out on the detour to direct us along with an aid station. This added an extra mile to the course, but at least we were able to finish our race.
