The organization in every way was superb and they had plenty of aid stations, portapotties, and great volunteers. I really liked the way the course was laid out as well --- it flowed very well. Hayward Field was a great finish as well. Overall, I got to give this race high marks. I definitely recommend it to any of you 50-staters or MM's out there.

Pros:
1) Overall fantastic race organization.
2) Great scenic course.
3) Surprisingly good crowd support.
4) Cool medal and t-shirt
5) Decent expo
Cons:
1) They could have used more port-a-john's.
2) The course isn't quite as flat as advertised. The hills aren't bad, but just be aware that it's not 100% flat. Check out the profile on this site if you need a better idea.
