Overall, a great experience. The race was very well-organized the by camp staff who will respond promptly to any questions you bring. The course is run in a very rural, but lush and beautiful, farming community of southeastern South Dakota. It is mostly flat with a few baby hills, and the surface of gravel roads are easy to follow and run on, especially when a bit saturated by recent rains. Very few fans, but aid stations are adequate and well-spaced, and post-race food is excellent (especially the potato casserole). I felt very comfortable and welcome at this faith-based camp, and would recommend it for those enjoying a quiet, refreshing run on a peaceful Sunday morning.
