Registering for this race was easy and changing distances later was also no problem which I very much appreciated.
Race morning parking was easy and well directed with just a short walk to the start area. I also picked up my bib and shirt on race morning. I was there maybe an hour early and there was no line. They also had coffee and giant water tubs.
The 50k started in three waves which was nice as there were about 200 runners and it spread things out a bit.
The course wasn't super technical though there were spots of rocks. If you are used to hills it probably wouldn't be bad either. My flat land legs were protesting by the end though. It is also worth mentioning that there is some sand on the course. Being unfamiliar with Wisconsin I didn't think save would be an issue so I was unprepared and my feet paid the price.
The volunteers at the aid stations were great and so enthusiastic. The aid stations also had all the usual oranges and chips end candy in addition to Clif gels.
The scenery on the course was great. This was my first time in Wisconsin so everything was new to me which made the miles go by much faster. There were several prairie stretches which got pretty toasty once the sun was up, but once you got back into the woods the temperature was much better.
The finish are was full of spectators and the announcer was great at calling out every runner coming through. In addition to a medal you also received a reusable water bottle...a nice change from the usual disposable ones! Those who ran a marathon or longer (all the Saturday events) got a beer and a hot meal which I very much appreciated! There were also many different tents at the start/finish festival with different sponsors, North Fave gear and activities.
Overall this is a race that I would highly recommend! I had a great time and hope to run it again in the future...after upping my hill training!
