Absolutely loved this course. It was a mix of paved/limestone and took runner through prairies, residential streets, and some commercial areas. The highlight for me was definitely running through Green Valley Forrest . And it definitely wasn't the flattest race, but heck, unless you're looking for a BQ, I prefer some hills.. they let you use a different muscle set and break up the monotony.

2013 was the inaugural year for this marathon and I thought they did an excellent job on the first time around. The course was just the right amount of hilly and the organization was great. My only complaint would be that the starting corrals were too packed/small.
