This was my first 50 miler, and as such will always be special to me. Aid stations are amazing, as a previous poster described - they have everything, and the volunteers do everything they can to help you. I was fortunate enough to train on the course so I knew what I was in for - there aren't a ton of large steep hills, but there are A LOT of little rollers that WILL wear you out. For a course in the Midwest without a ton of scenic landmarks it is very pretty at times and the trails you run on are maintained well. This race is a very good choice for a first ultra.
