Excellent Half- Marathon

This was my first ever half marathon race. What a tremendous experience! The route was well marked with drink/aid stations, port-a-potties and supporters. All road traffic was blocked off for runner safety and the route was on country roads and easy on the legs. The route is a challenge with rolling hills but the scenery was well worth it! I would highly encourage you to participate in this half marathon!

Race to the center, in Smith Center,KS

Overall, I enjoyed the race. It would have been even better if the weather gods had provided a little better day;]. But, no one can control that. Everything was well organized, and the rides to the start, and back from the finish, were greatly appreciated. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a fun half-marathon.
