I am new to running and this was my first race. The course was a bit challenging with rolling hills in different areas. The scenery is decent if you like city runs. I like being able to run through the area of Anheuser-Busch around mile 3. Race results are easily accessible. They even take video of everyone crossing the finish line. It's funny to see all the runners in costume. When a large gorilla passes you just can't help but smile. I received a unique finisher's medal at the end. The weather was decent. It rained the day before so there were puddles to avoid but it did not rain during the race. They list 2343 runners this year so it was a large group of people which was fun to be a part of. I do plan on running it again next year.
