This is a fairly flat PR-type course, all distances USATF certified and eligible for state and national records. WE HAVE SEVERAL NEW STATE RECORDS EVERY YEAR!!! (Google "Missouri state running records.) Surface is hard-packed finely crushed gravel rail-to-trail so it pays to train on a similar surface. Normal running shoes are OK, but if you love trail shoes, go ahead. Average low temp is 40, average high temp is 67. Very nice large medals with Frisco artwork (half marathon and above) and nice tecnical T-shirts with great Frisco artwork. Well-stocked aid stations (fluids/gels) plus food and Coke for ultra runners every 2.5 miles. Port-a-johns every 5 miles. Great awards for relay teams, overall M/F, masters M/F, veterans M/F, and three deep in 10 year age groups, all events. Great snacks after the race and free pizza for marathon and ultra runners.
