Review: Race was AWESOME. Love the fact it was a green event. The organization of the event made it both challenging for serious runners and fun for newbies. Will do it again.

Review: This race has it all: woods, hills, corn fields, rivers, mud, rock scrambles...and the scenery was amazing! Great post race spread. The cold towels at the finish was an awesome touch. A must to add to your running bucket list!

Review: I've run in this race 3 years in a row. The first year was definitely a surprise - a good one - as this race is definitely more fun than your typical 5 or 10k. It's challenging, but doable, and you can work to improve your time each year. It's also a great family event, with the kids run. My 2-year old ran the kids fun run - a mile! with her mom and had a blast.

Review: This was a challenging (LOTS of hills!) but very fun race! The scenery was beautiful and it felt so good to get off the road and into nature. Well organized with plenty of water stops (which I needed!) and the t-shirt was a great addition.
