    I took the bus from the Mall to the Race, and I highly recommend it. There aren’t as many people cheering you on during this race, but the course is tree-lined and fun. Super flat, with no real hills of any type. Finish medal is nice quality, I loved the swag, and the free beer after in the tent at the wild hog is great.

    There isn’t a lot of support on the sidelines as compared to other big races. But still a lot of run. Great swag. The relay race is fun too. I do wish the public was more involved and supportive. I just signed up for my first 10k for this race. Excited and nervous!

    This was my second year running the Wild Hog Half Marathon and I have been impressed both years. Attending the Wild Hog Marathon will likely a yearly tradition for my family. Even better, they are having a FULL marathon for the first time in 2016!

    Expo: The atmosphere is “small-town”, compared to the Fargo or Twin Cities Marathons, which I really appreciated. Picking up my number and race swag was a very quick and smooth process and the expo did have a few goodies to pick up.

    Race Swag: The BEST! In both 2014 and 2015, the race swag included a pair of Fitsocks with “Wild Hog” on the top band, a beverage glass, and high quality finisher’s shirt. This year’s shirts were grey zip-up long sleeve shirts with thumb holes in the sleeves. The race medal was a cut-out of the Wild Hog head – nice medal and unique design.

    Course: Flat, flat, flat. The course covers mainly residential and park ground, which on a sunny Fall day was beautiful to me! I highly recommend their full marathon if you are looking for a BQ! That should be a great fast course for qualifying.

    Aid Station: Plenty of aid stations along the course that offered water, sports drinks and GUs at some of them.
