Very well run race – excellent logistics, especially if you stay at the host hotel. Volunteers are amazing and they do a great job on course making sure runners are protected from traffic. Pockets of supporters as you would expect. The organizers were amazing in adjusting the start up to 6 am to protect us from the heat.

The course was tough (I won’t forget you Hillcrest). Maybe it was the humidity and the hills combined – either way, I thought it was tough. Definitely not a PR course.

The medal is as advertised and the post race food was really good.

In all, a nice day experiencing Little Rock. I would definitely recommend,

I’m not sure what I was expecting, but this exceeded it! Arrived on Saturday and was surprised at how quiet the downtown was. Stayed at a downtown hotel and everything I needed was within walking distance. Expo was fine – nice vendors and helpful volunteers.

Race day was rainy. I’d purchased VIP so I could wait in a heated tent. VIP also included a bit of food/coffee and separate ports potties. The race itself was fantastic. The course included such a variety of areas – the only constant was HILLS! I think it was one of my favorite courses because of the variety. The COU detour was…disappointing. Not well marked and spectators milling around. I’m glad to have done it and appreciate the commemorative medallion but was expecting more. the finish was fairly minimal, although I didn’t stick around too long because of the rain.the medal is huge and it’s nice they have different medals for different groups (50 states; first marathon, etc…),

All in all, I loved it. I wish I had spent a bit more time in Tulsa.

Excellent organization and a beautiful course. Majority of the course is flat, with the exception of one pretty significant hill (big flat road – clever name). Early miles are the most scenic and then you make your way into town. Volunteers were great.

The town of Missoula is a gem. I took the free bus from the airport to downtown and walked everywhere from there. Excellent restaurants made for a really nice race weekend.

I have such great memories of this race!

Pre-Race: Expo was decent. Had a chance to meet Deena Kastor at the shakeout run the day before the race. Lots of good dining within walking distance of the downtown hotels.

Race-Day: Probably the best logistics for a marathon ever. I stayed at a hotel downtown and was able to walk to the start. Course was fair, taking in the downtown area and then taking a big loop before finishing back where you started. Volunteers were great. Weather was good and I managed a substantial PR. Was able to get back to the hotel and shower before time to checkout. Medal was nice.

Overall, a really great experience and I’d recommend this race to anyone.
