IMHO BIH is the best race I’ve ever run. The Amish community know how to throw a gr8 race. Awesome beautiful course, rolling hills and gr8 crowd support. Nice handmade horseshoe bling. Organization was tops. Weather was a factor too. Cools temps, overcast. Gr8 pre and post parties too. I highly recommend.

It is a a humid, hot day so that didn’t help. Very little to no shade either. They tied it into a big festival at the end but with no shade and beat up from running I fled. Course not bad, same typical downtown Memphis.

is the best way to describe the race. Smaller ’cause of the heavy downpour of rain. I’ve run the course in different races: hilly but very forgiving at the end. The payoff is a flat, quick course in the 2nd half. Bling is an interesting riverboat with a moving wheel. Good organization too.

just the way I dig my races. The wx was unusually cold for the AJM. It’s a small race & can use more volunteers at check-in. Course monitors nearly froze & were in their cars at some turns. But course support was good. Very hilly and the wind added to the challenge. It was a confidence builder for sure.

where I ran a a race that was formally known as Whispering Woods. Kinda humid and course was hilly is places. But I dig hills. Good organization & volunteers. Small race which I like. Not many peeps on course as in went thru neighborhoods. Good course support. And a very nice t-shirt and medal.

I’m so familiar with this course I could probably run it with my eyes close. It is a rolling hills course & it’ll bite you late if you don’t plan out your run. Depending on the wx, the crowds are good, but if it’s chilly, very few. Organizers are top notch too. Nice swag. Good for a PR.

It’s a 2 mile, looping course. Didn’t know what to think, but I liked it. Easy, road course thru pretty forest. Well stocked aid stations on either end of course. Seeing runners thru out is a plus. Nice medal & stocking cap. Could have run harder but have a pace assignment next week. Will repeat.

Repeat pacing assignment. (5th time) Hilly course. But the downhills gives a change to recover & stay on pace. Chilly weather but great running weather. Ok crowd support. Nice aid stations. After party wouldn’t allow us halfers chocolate milk. It was for full. Really? But will pace again next year.

Don’t trail run much & I know why. Tough course, ‘specially on a freezing day and right after the holidays. I entered to keep my running honest. But it’s a small production & organizers tell you that. No frills, just get out & run. The aid station is awesome, PB&J, cookies, fuel for trail runners. I will run more trials cause I have a score to settle with this one next year!

not a fan of this race. Yeah, I know it’s for a great cause but it’s gotten too big and I fear the organizers have forgotten the runners. Too many races at once. Half runners ran into the back end of the 5K walkers. Finish line is crowded & confusing. Good crowds though. I’ve run it before, but may take a break from it this coming year. They used to have a relay which was fun, but eliminated it. Too bad.

This was my 2nd of a BtoB so I took my time and glad I did. What a fun race! Enjoyed the crowds and kept stopping along the course to chat & drink. Great chilly wx with sunshine. Nice after party too if that’s how u roll. Nice fleece pull over too. Flat fast course too.

It’s a small race, with a small hometown feel. The wx was chilly & rainy & since I was running another half the following day I took it easy. Ran a comfortable pace & stopped and talked with the locals. I’m sure it’s pretty when the sun is out. The fall colors were late too. Good course support, but you do run on a very busy state hiway for a good part of the race.

combined with driving, freezing rain & wind that could tip over cows, well, it is a character builder! I tossed out any race plan & pulled up my big boy shorts & ran. Tucked in behind runners to survive. Very hilly course. Small race production. Didn’t realize IOWA, of all places could be so hilly.

I’ve run several races in my hometown but this one was special. KC is really hilly, most out-of-town runners don’t know that. But I enjoyed the course, and the crowds were awesome. I race with a great pace group too & sped off at 10 miles. Ran race in 2013.
