Review

This was one of the better marathons that I have completed. There are many pros to this race. There are at least five hotels within walking distance of the start/finish area and all were reasonably priced. A shuttle was available to the start if desired, but most people won't need it. It is a smaller race (only 120 finishers this year) with a home town feel to it. An indoor waiting area at the start meant that runners could stay warm and dry in the event of cold/inclement weather. There were also REAL indoor bathrooms at the start, and plenty of them. No waiting in lines at porta potties here. It was a scenic course. No skyscrapers, only wide open prairies, mountains in the distance, trees, the river and some wildlife. You can expect sunny weather as this is typical for Casper this time of year. Every aid station had water, Gatorade, GU, oranges slices and watermelon. Aid stations were available every 1.5 to 2 miles. The post race finish area also had these same amenities, with the addition of chocolate milk, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, grapes, apple slices and pineapple at the finish. There were also Pizza Hut pizza and Subway sandwiches, soda and beer. Free beer. Plenty of shade at the finish area, too. There are a couple of drawbacks to the race, too. First, the weather. Yes, I know I listed the weather as a pro, but being sunny meant it warmed up quickly and there is not a lot of shade on the course. Hats and sunglasses are recommended. Miles 6-9 or so are on a curvy section of the bike trail. Be sure to "run the curves" so as not to add any extra distance to your race. The altitude can be an obstacle if you are not used to it. Being a smaller race meant there were not a lot of spectators/supporters on the course, either. Overall, I thought it was a very good marathon. For 50-staters, this should be your Wyoming race!
