Michael Mason-D'Croz's thoughts:

I ran this race in 2015 and it was a fun one. I ran it with my wife, and until the finish we kept together. It was a challenging race with lots of hills -- which for a flatlander like myself was a challenge.

The course -- Hills. Hills. Hills. But the scenery was great. It is a nice loop that gets you through much of the town and lets you see many of the scenic features of downtown KC. You get to see downtown, the P&L, WWI monument and the Plaza. It was a nice place.

The aid stations -- Every 2 miles, like clockwork. They were great.

The crowd -- Pockets of people, but where they were located, it was a lot of them and it was great.

The expo -- BIg with lots to do and see. Lots of swag to pick up.

The swag -- One of my favorite race shirts. It has a great logo and look. I wear it frequently. The medal is a nice one, very large, and they distinguish between the races. Good stuff. Oh ... and free race photos! They are yours! You get an email and can download the ones with you in them, no extra fee! Love that.

Overall, I would run this race again, it was fun. My wife didn't enjoy the hills, but other than that it was a good one.
