Tracy 's thoughts:

Online registration was simple; inexpensive cost ($25). Registration includes a ticket to that night's Bats baseball game, with additional tickets $3 each. Easy packet pickup the night before at a local running store or that morning. Race start/finish at Slugger Field (AAA ballpark) with ample free parking. Restrooms at Slugger were open so plenty of facilities. The race course zig-zags through Waterfront Park. It's described as scenic, but only if you're really into the different shades of brown that make up the Ohio River. It's mostly concrete path, with a lot of 90 degree turns. The race volunteers were great at directing the runners in the first half, but then they seemed to disappear and some people took a wrong turn towards the end. During the 3rd mile, there's a section of the course that is just the path — about 8-10' wide — and runners are going both ways. (With construction actively going on.) Add a giant puddle into the mix and things got a little tricky. Not a huge fan of the course because of the number of turns, but races in Downtown Louisville are difficult right now because of the ongoing road work (optimistic that will improve).

First place male and female receive a custom Louisville Slugger bat and the opportunity to throw out the game's first pitch that night. All participants can enjoy a pancake and bacon breakfast at Slugger Field after the race, with lots of door prizes raffled off and standard age group awards.
