I was very impressed by how well the race was organized - especially for their first event. And I heard many women comment after the race about the same. I loved the course and the mixture of road and path and flat and hilly course. The atmosphere was fun and as advertised and I was super impressed. Even though I didn't run the race I wanted, I enjoyed the event and will be back in the future. It's well worth the drive to the Milwaukee-area to experience this. I would recommend it for first-timers as well as seasoned runners. A fun time to be had by everyone!
