is the best in Kansas. It’s well organized, small, yet the whole town comes out to support it. I paced this race & nailed my time. Probably one of the better races I’ve run. Despite sunny course, great support throughout. The after party has all types of food. Worth repeating.

The course changed last minute due to road construction so it cancelled out a hilly section. But that plus nice weather and good course support made for an enjoyable race. It’s a small race and despite running in a suburb, it gets rather lonely. But if you’re looking for an easy half, try this one.

I really enjoyed this trail race. It’s on a old railroad line and is a well groomed trial. I did a run-walk & had a fab time. It’s a small race, yet the organizers pay attention to all details. Great course support and hot soup and donuts at the end. Smaller races have more “soul,” a real local feel & I enjoyed meeting local runners. Trail races rock! Don’t miss this one.

and it’s worth it everytime. The Connors organize a great point-to-point race. It’s small but that’s a wonderful quality about this race. The start is uphill onto a bridge then it’s flat, but there is a slight increase in the neighborhood section. Excellent snacks await you and the tamales are tasty! Great race.

One tough course. Locals warned of the hills & they weren’t kidding. I usually like hills too. I paced the 2:30 group and came in on time. It’s an out and back and the hills coming back were steep and wicked. It is a small race and our pace group has just me, a co-pacer and one other runner for while then is took off. Good running weather though.

whish isn’d bad if you are expecting it. Strong headwind caused problems for some. Under new management, the race suffers from lack of attention to details.

Very efficient race and production. I’ve run this for several years & am very familiar with it. Germantown is hillier than one would think. Slight course changes this year.

The good: Great weather after years of sucky cold/rain/ice; my son race a blistering half and earned a AG award of a hilly course; fun neighborhood with fireball shots and mimosas. The bad: the roads are a mess (always have been!), saw two runners face plant. MS is a poor state & it shows. Water stations undermanned. Race org is mixed. The RD came in before the race and hollered at us about a car parked that needed to be moved. Why not just tow it and be done it? Kinda silly he did that. It used to be a top race, now just a race to check off. I guess that why they call it the Blues. (see what I did there?)

It’s part of the Memphis Road Race series which is an excellent series throughout the summer. The halves are the last two in the series. It’s run along a hiway just a tad north of Memphis.

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.

My dad was a 50 stater before it was cool to do. We drove up to drop me off at college and decided to run this race while in Wisconsin. A big turnout from the town and beautiful course BUT hills were a killer. I didn’t train properly and paid for it. My dad it with a 3:15. But running some of the race with him before I faded was memorable.
