This was a nice small half marathon on the Illinois side of the St. Louis metro area. They had race day packet pick-up, which was ideal for those coming in from out of town and throughout the metro area. Instead of a t-shirt they gave us what they called a "custom buff" piece which could be used as a headband, scarf, hair tie, etc. The course consisted primarily of local trails so although it was a smaller race, you always saw other runners and bikers on the trail. The water stops were well-placed since the course consisted of multiple out-and-back loops, and the volunteer support was excellent.
Overall I would recommend this race, but bear in mind that when you are paying less for a race your expectations can't be the same as they are for a more expensive race.
