Jason ran this race as well and we met him at the end. I stayed with Allison.
Good things about this race:
Nice bib for your scrapbook
Race details online
Lots and lots of good Food after the race
Ending on the Hawkeye field
water stop on the course
plenty of volunteers
Great race shirt that is dri fit.
Seemed very well organized.
Band on the course that sounded really great.
Things that could be better about this race:
Pace signs at the beginning so walkers DON'T line up in front of runners
Putting the water stop more at the half way point INSTEAD of at mile 1 where you don't need it yet.
Letting us get water on the field instead of having to wait until walking all the way out of the field to get it.
Cap the race at 1500 so there aren't so many people in the race.
Finishing medal since it's a cool Hawkeye race
Recognizing winners of age groups and Overall winners there at the race and not mailing the awards.
DOOR PRIZES, seriously you had sponsors, so where were the door prizes.
