This race is pretty decent, it's not Chicago's best course, but it is flat and fast. The shirt is cool -every school gets their own, which in and of itself is fun. It's really well organized, lots of trash talking day of....I wouldn't do this if you are super competitive looking for a fast time, the start is just too narrow and crowded, even for the elites. I scrapped out a 38:59 for 11th OA and 2nd in my AG, so it's pretty competitive. Everyone gets a really cool medal, and if you place in your AG, a mini football! We had fun, probably wouldn't travel to do it again though.
