Race Information
What Arctic Prairie Dog Half Marathon
When: January 14, 2017
Distance: 13.1 Miles, Half Marathon
Where: Louisville, Colorado

The Arctic Prairie Dog Half Marathon begins at Coal Creek Golf Course. Although parking in the gold course lot becomes full almost immediately, there is plenty of safe parking in the neighborhood. Race instructions were clear and there were plenty of bathrooms available.

The race was mostly flat with some small hills, and varied between road and packed gravel surfaces. Most of the race is run throughout the open space areas in Louisville which provide beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding areas. Volunteers were excellent with aid stations and controlling traffic during a few crosswalks you had to run through.

After the race, there was a small expo and awards ceremony. I ran slowly thanks to a pulled IT Band around mile 8, so by the time I finished, many of the festivities had already taken place. The race medal and pint glass were very well designed and I personally love that their Mascot is Peedy the Prairie Dog. Anyone who runs through these areas of Colorado is very familiar with the adorable prairie dogs that line the trails.

Overall, this was a well-organized, and beautiful race through Louisville. My only suggestion would be to have a larger expo at the end; however, this is not necessary for an enjoyable race.
