Super organized, communicative, loved the smoothness of race day packet pick up, and that wonderful prayer at the start of the race truly spoke to me with its kindness and intention and that was a first at a race and I have done a few ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

I have always wanted to do a race on my birthday. Being 01/14 hard to find many that are not on the west coast (where I live lol) Having been to Arkansas 2 others times, I am a huge fan of the state parks in AR so that was my first โœ… then as I read about the cause โœ… which is to send $$ to a library at an elementary school, as a teacher, my heart was so excited that I knew this HAS to be the race I do for my birthday race. Itโ€™s state 34 for me and trail half marathon #2. I am so thankful I got to do this race!

On to the race:::: clear directions and signage, wonderful volunteers, deliciously stocked aid stations, the tacos and selection of soft drinks after and finished with hoodies to cozy up post race.

The medal is made from wood and the hoodie is top notch seriously.

Race day was chilly but after couple hours it was perfect. Lots of leaves ๐Ÿ but not impossible. It had a good amount of climbs and defeats to make it super fun. We also crossed mini creeks 3 times but didnโ€™t get wet. Flush and heated bathrooms at the state park were a luxury I needed coming from Southern California ๐Ÿ˜† cause 39 degrees is cold to me.

Thank you once again ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Easy packed pick up, loved the ease of parking, and the scenery on the course. I started late I was jet lagged and the race timing company and director were amazing.
Lots of support on the course, cheer stations and the local first responders were OUTSTANDING!! I felt like I was on a beautiful long run which I loved. It was crazy hot but thatโ€™s because of the tropical storm. The medal was super cute.

Race shirt was generic thin long sleeve, should have gotten a smaller size, they had bananas, sweet tea and some cubed sour dough bread (kinda slim pickings after a race this hot). No ice for the tea, no beer after either which was interesting. It would be nice if there was a poster or something to take a picture with at the end but there wasnโ€™t any. Also, lots of turns and curves so had to pt attention lol

If you like a small town feel, cute shops, decorated for Christmas, low crowds then this is for you! I loved it.

This was my very first trail race. I knew it would be hard and boy it was!!! Ran it with an amazing friend of mine and we had a blast
Good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ:::
Stunning course, amazing smiley volunteers, participants are regular community runners who were just soooo encouraging, AMAZING and enthusiastic announcer, perfect weather, cold ๐Ÿฅถ at the start but the fire pits really made it perfect, easy parking, easy packet pick up and beautiful sweater.

Need improvement/not so good ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป:::
Race director was not personable, short with participants, no where on the site does it say no medal ๐Ÿ…. So be aware!! Poorly stocked ONE aide station, they ran out of utensils at the finish, beer was not cold, no photographer at the finish, and they couldโ€™ve made stickers or wood medals or something and had them as optional.

If you need IL or Iowa I highly recommend TBK Bank Quad Cities Marathon – 25th Anniversary I did the 1 miler and Half Marathon. This was State #31 for me IL! Itโ€™s in Moline IL.

Superbly organized race, great weather, stunning fast and unique course (run 4 cities in 2 states on both sides of the Mississippi River and get on a military base too) , the swag is amazing (long sleeve, gloves, beanie and socks), tons of course support and cheer stations 9 water stops I think is what I counted , and a local bar owner docs his boat and hands beer cans to runners ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿบ, oh delicious food at the finish (mac n cheese, chicken fried rice and soda as well as beer), affordable hotels near the start, free easy parking, free photos, and the race director high fives all finishers! I am still so frikin happy I did this race for IL. There was a farmers market near the finish that was super fun to visit.

Great course, somewhat hilly but absolutely beautiful scenery. Many sections were muddy because of the torrential rain the night before. Race course support was awesome. Several cheering stations. Medal is super fun too. It was super hot and humid and I struggled to keep going. Thankful I finished!!

Stunning course with plenty of inspiring views of the Tetons, beautiful medal, water and gel stations were plenty and well staffed (although I recommend carrying your own hydro pack), free race photos to be emailed next week, generous finish time or 4 hours if you choose or need to take your time, recovery box waiting at the finish line, enthusiastic race coordinators and volunteers, very organized race from packet pick up to shuttle return. Also at race expo they were giving out past years race shirts and demonstrated how to recycle them into reusable bags (definitely got my vote – caring about our environment is something to love). They emailed great suggestions for hikes and places to eat nearby also.

Think about:::: Altitude is definitely a serious issue, we got to town half a day before the race and my lungs didnโ€™t have time to adjust so the struggle impacted my race time for sure.
