Course W/Slight Roll; an All Right Event (General Comments)|
A Runner from Suburb of Minneapolis, MN USA (8/16/00)
(Run in 99.) As far as I've been read/seen, this is flattest course in Arkansas. But it still has multiple, but mild, rolls. Out-back course on asphalt roads/streets/brief (not busy) highway shoulder. Finish on a HS track. EZ/close parking near start/finish. Male shower/changing rooms available with only cages, not lockers. Decent post-race feed, incl. BBQ. Friendly race staff and volunteers. Course reasonably monitored and coned. Spectators limited to supporters and volunteers; not (yet?) a town 'event'. Outbound headwind in 99. Well-executed for a rookie race. In-town lodging limited, but enough within 20 miles. Who was that (male) runner who needed both pre- and post-race cigarettes?!
