T-Shirts/SWAG: Each runner gets a tech t-shirt, reusable Finisher water bottle at the finish line, and a free beer if you're 21+.
Aid Stations: None on course for the 5K, although it's not necessary for a 5K if you ask me. At the finish, there was water, orange slices, bagel pieces, bananas, and other snacks available for the runners.
Course Scenery: Running in Kettle Moraine State Forest immerses you in the beauty of southern Wisconsin. This time of year, the trees are still green but you get the vibe of seasons about to change. The 5K course gives you a taste and tempts you to sign up for a longer distance next year so that you can see more!
Expo: There is a booth where spectators and runners can buy food (pulled pork, pulled turkey, chips, fruit, potatoes, cookies, canned soda), the gear check tent, Kenosha Running Company, TNF Store AirStream trailer and tent where you can play bags and win swag, Skratch tent w/different flavors to try, two tents with foam rollers/yoga mats and ice bath tubs, and a tent for face painting and the 5K kids run.
Elevation: I felt like, for a 5K this had a decent amount of elevation changes. Not enough to discourage you, but enough to provide a challenge to all runners.
Parking/Access: Ottawa Lake is easy to get to from all directions. The race pays for everyone's parking fee so a blue tag is provided to all cars entering. Parking lots are numerous and close to the Start/Finish. Volunteers are aplenty and very good at directing you where to park.
Race Management: RD Nick Moore and the whole TNF ECS team put on such an amazing event. They make sure they have more than enough medics, PD, and volunteers to make everyone's race experience safe and fantastic.
This is a race that I will do every year, hands down. Highly recommend!
