Absolutely amazing race! Unfortunately I did not have much time to explore the expo since I had to drive to MS Blues but from the time I spent there it was fun, the merchandise was great and the atmospheric was lively. The course had extremely few flat spots and was either uphill or downhill but the hills made it so satisfying to cross the finish line. The medal is in my top 5 for sure, the volunteers course support, traffic control, and sites were top notch. I will definitely be back to run again.

TLDR: Fun 2 loop course with some challenging hills, lack of variation in race swag and medals, and insufficient traffic control. Will not run again.
Positives: nice course, friendly volunteers, easy packet pickup
Negatives: Generic medal with no engraving indicating race year, generic long sleeve with small race logo, not nearly enough volunteers at stops, not nearly enough security to keep traffic from nearly hitting runners at several major intersections, most music acts were not set up by the time I ran by them and by the time I returned on the 2nd loop most entertainment was gone., medal strap broke 3 hrs after receiving it. Didnt feel very “MS Blues” other than one or two music acts and the generic medal logo.

Post race the race director has had some back and forth with former runners and online trolls using the official Facebook page that show that he does not take well and his posts seem petty, had I read what he wrote before hand I would not have signed up. The poor reputation of the race unfortunately seems well earned hopefully in the future he puts more effort into giving the race something unique.

-The course was mostly flat with only 2 decent sized hills to overcome.
– Stops were good, volunteers were great
-The medals were one star for me, a big part of why I run races is to get a medal that makes it feel worth running 26.2 miles and paying a fee but they were just cheap pieces of wood with large tacky stickers on them. The jacket was nice and seems good quality. Ran to check Alabama off my 50 states list but wish I had just waited for Rocket City.
-The expo was lacking energy, the AirBnB I stayed in though was reasonably priced and it was easy to get to/from the race in the morning and afterwards.
-Plenty of free parking nearby which is always a huge bonus.

The weather Sunday was perfect, couldn’t have asked for a better day to suffer(😅). The hills kicked my but the first 13 miles after having completed Kansas City’s shin breaking hills the day prior. After the first 13 though, the course smoothed out pretty nicely and the volunteers were amazing the entire time cheering and dancing and screaming at me to keep going. Loved the medal and the finish party. My favourite parts though were the free parking throughout all of downtown which made it extremely easy to find a spot before the race. And the fact that they partnered with the YMCA a block away allowed runners to shower and unwind after the race. This was the first race I’ve been to that offered this courtesy and let me just say it was so much nicer being able to shower before starting my 9 1/2 hr drive back home.

The medal was good, however the shirts could have been much better, the design just seemed a bit lacking and basic. The corrals need to be made much larger to accommodate for the runners and the 10kers should not start at the same time as the if they aren’t going to make expand the corrals. The weather was dreary for the first two hours but after that is was a perfect day for racing! I absolutely loved the .5 mile downhill finish it made me feel that much stronger finishing. Good race overall, probably won’t run again.
