Review

Super organized smaller (300 plus in full) race. The best pre-race I've ever seen. Tons of port-a-potties, water, coffee, food but the thing that distinguishes the pre-race are the fire pits and mats. Look at the photos on the website and make sure you arrive early to enjoy this. The course is very scenic especially the first 6 miles. On course support is excellent. Great medal, nice t-shirt and a much bigger expo than I expected from a smaller race like this.


Race Tips

There are very few obvious hills on this course but quite a few long gradual up and down hills. Make sure you look at the elevation guide. We had hot temps in 2014 and there's almost no shade. Most of the roads are closed to traffic and the stretches that aren't closed completely shut down a full lane so runners will always feel safe.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

I camped at the local KOA which was super convenient. The race is point to point. I parked at the finish (in the local rodeo grounds) and took the shuttle to the start. Worked great! As I've said arrive early to really enjoy the pre-race set-up.


5 / 5 Stars
