This was my first year running Ganzo's, so i really didn't know what to expect. Angie and a couple of other's were going to be there, though, so i thought "why not!" and registered a bit late... So it was a wee more expensive for me (35 bucks, i think you could register raceday for 40).
I picked up my packet the night before. That was quick and easy as long as you knew your bib number (i gave'em the wrong one the first time!). I got a shirt, some koozies, and about 3 pens.
Raceday i showed up a bit early since i was run/walking to the start line. I noticed the main parking for the event was across a major road/highway. They had someone helping stop traffic though so it didn't seem like it was too much of a problem. Still, if you live in Davenport and can run to the start it makes it much easier.
The course itself was mainly rolling hills through residential neighborhoods. There were 2 water stops and i BELIEVE an unofficial beer (domestic...) stop somewhere in there. There were plenty of volunteers directing us in the right direction, especially on the little out n back we did where you could've cut across if you weren't paying attention.
The finish line was organized well. You could go straight to the timing place for your results or turn left and head into the party after you recieved your medal. we (Angie Joel and I) waited around at the finish to cheer some runners on for a bit until we were told to move because the road needed to be open. I'm not sure where the cars were heading we had to move for because they were heading straight for the course.
Anyway, the afterparty had a live band, some snacks, LOTS of Bud Light and shots of tequilla. There was a taco truck set up though if you wanted to grab some heartier food. All in all i had a great time and the course was hilly but not too challenging. I can see myself running this one next year.
