Enjoyed the race with good course of flat and hilly in first half.

pros
Expo is simple and only for Bib collection
lots of parking near expo and race start.
closest parking to race start/finish
Scenic first half with river, hills and good neibourhood parks.
the second half is straight river trail with wooden bridges and some folks felt difficult to go straight for 6.5 miles and come back
Good medal and reasonable crowd
good Aid stations all over
cons
expo is very minimal
course is off at least quarter mile

beautiful city and mid sized race.
Easy packet pickup at convention center and good no of business and counters on race course etc.
Easy near by parking on city garages free
7.30 start and runners can stand inside convention center before start
first few miles around UT and then into beautiful neighborhoods before heading into downtown in last few miles.
The course is hilly but enjoyable with local support.
Good post race party with lots of food inside and beer.

Before the race it’s Chicago that makes this race great and simple. The transportation is very easy from airport to downtown and local commute. Easy access to restaurants and big expo
Next is crowd on the race course ..Amazing support through and it’s like festival
Course is very good except many runners had tough experience with humid weather this year .
Defiantly will revisit the race in future and one of the best experience
The finish festival should be improved. For the race of this scale there are not enough experience for runner after finish line.
