Kansas is reportedly flat, but this was Kansas City, MISSOURI and had quite a few hills, a couple of them very challenging. Well managed race, excellent traffic control, ample close parking. Plain cotton T shirt and bland medal. I enjoyed this challenging course, but I was wiped out by the time I crossed the finish line.

5th year in a row and it was the best weather ever. They have improved the expo every year. This year they improved a lot of little things as well. I paced a friend on her first 1/2 and she beat our goal for her by 3 min!

This race improves every year. Yes there are good hills in Kansas City, but it's such a well run event. I paced this race and had a great time.

This was a nice half marathon. I ran the first part of the race at a sub 8 minute pace and then hit the hills....and then was hit by the hills! I was set to PR by a lot and then just didn't pace it right. But it was a good race. I'm glad I did it.

A beautiful, cool day that was perfect for a race. A couple of challenging hills in the first few miles, and rolling for the rest of the race. Lots of support with many water stops and plenty of spectators. Very well organized race. Lots of fun!

My first half marathon since May, after having to take off for surgery. I had two goals: 1. finish it, 2. do it in under 2:30. I'm very satisfied. The course was beautiful, a lot of fountains, music, and many aid stations. This is one of the most well-organized races I've run. The course was rolling to hilly. Pretty hilly in the beginning, but back downhill at the end.
