The race director and organizers are wonderful. I got a personal postcard thanking me for registering. Full and 1/2 marathons got zip up embroidered quality jackets. The route was easy/flat that follows the river in a out and back loop. Then crosses the road and runs around a nice lake. The Des Moines crowd support was very nice with several bands.

Don’t let the elevation chart scare you. All the hills in this race are manageable. One most note that you are either running uphill or downhill, very few “flat” areas. This race has a nice blend of urban and parkway/residential. The downhill finish is just over .5 miles long and fairly steep.

Fun and flat. This race is a nice combo of street, paved paths, and elevated boardwalks. It would also be a great course for a pr. The production is wonderfully done. Packet pickup is smooth, small, but nicely done. Post race, wow! Sand castles, food, beer, candy table, and a great live band. So fun.

This races has been on my bucket list. Past reviews made it seem fun. Not so anymore. The expo, spooky small. There was maybe 9-10 booths. So don’t count on buying anything at the expo for your race. The race it’s self, hilly. Each hill alone wasn’t hard, but put them all together and they taxed the legs. Road conditions are not great, uneven, crumbling, pot holes, etc. the good thing is that the race spreads out and isn’t crowded so you can see obstacles. Also, runners travel down busy roads and or cross busy intersection. Very few h2o stops. Only two bands.
Post race. What post race? The medal was ok, but insignificant compared to past years. Standard boring food at the end. Woo-who? Bananas, granola bars? This isn’t special. All in all, the race wasn’t bad, just not what it use to be and fell flat in my expectations.
