This race was the most challenging race I have done – also my 10th marathon. I did the full marathon, half on the trail and half on the bike path. Both were challenging.
The trail half was first – this was a very technical trail. I was told it wasn’t, so I am either really big sissy or the Oklahoma folks are beast (maybe both!). The trail was tough, rocky and beautiful. There were beautiful sights along the course (if you could look up at all!). And oh my word, the climbs! It was a challenging course! It was so fun (and miserable at the same time!). The first half took my 3hours and 34 mins to complete – my typical half is about 2:15.
As you finish the trail half, you cross the finish line and start out to the bike trail half. There is opportunities to change shoes, socks, clothes, etc. Then you head out for the second half. There is a WONDERFUL down hill to kick start this portion. It’s fairly flat, but some big climbs at mile 21 and 26. The bike paths ran along the Arkansas river and were well maintained and a enjoyable course.
The aid stations – WERE AMAZING! They had french toast, bacon, sausage, every snack you could think of and most importantly amazing volunteers. It was a no-frills race, but the support with incredible.

Medals – GIANT! They call it a double half, so you get 2 medals (13.1 trail + 13.1 road) that fit together. I want to wear BOTH medals everyday. I was humbled by the race. If you are looking for a good challenge, this might be your answer. Small race, about 50 people do the half and half, 300 people total for all 4 races.

Weather was beautiful, course was challenging, support was amazing.
